Physics 212 Lecture 8, Slide 4 Your Comments 05 i thought i understood till the 2nd and 3rd checkpoints” Please, explain last checkpoint question (capacitors with and without a dielectric). Everything else was fine :) WILL DO See Calculation at End Will Do. . They were the hardest It seems like a lot of variables are inverses of each other. .. Can you clarify on this? An overview would be very helpful. How do different situations (e.g. capacitors in series, parallel, presence of dielectric, etc.) affect the charge, voltage, and energy of the circuit. ” “It's hard to keep all of the symbols and letters separate, and even harder to remember the "special cases" when variables stay they same or are changed.” I would like to go over some more examples with different types of capacitors set in circuits with both parallel and series connections.“ Detail detail detail, and some worked calculations would be “ We’ll summarize main points. “I worry that I have reached the capacity of my brain, I guess I can forget Chem to make some room.”

Physics 212 Lecture 8, Slide 6 By adding a dielectric you are just making a new capacitor with larger capacitance (factor of κ ) Dielectrics C 0 V Q 0 =VC 0 C 1 = κ C 0 V Q 1 =VC 1 11
