Unformatted text preview: , . Where we have used the formula for capacitance of a parallel plate capacitor of plate separation D and plate area A (which is constant over time), D A C And the relation ship between electrostatic field and electrostatic potential, D V x V E C x x where x is the direction normal to the plates and the potential gradient is uniform between the plates and we have neglected the negative sign since we are dealing with magnitudes only....
