Cylindrical Capacitor Given: Find: nF C 20 0 ? final Q V V 12 6 . 2 k An air-gap parallel plate capacitor of capacitance C 0 = 20 nF is connected to a battery with voltage V = 12 V. While the capacitor remains connected to the battery, we insert a dielectric ( = 2.6) into the gap of the capacitor, filling one half of the volume as shown above. What is Q final , the charge on the capacitor in the final situation?
