F = Q 2 A , E top = Q A , vector E top bardbl vector E top bardbl 8. F = Q 2 A , E top = Q 2 A , vector E top bardbl vector E top bardbl Explanation: Recall from chapter 16 that the magni tude of the electric field between two oppo sitely charged parallel conducting plates of area A with charge magnitude  Q  is given by  vector E cap  = Q/ A , and that this is a su perposition of the (equal) contributions of both plates. Therefore, the magnitude of the field due to the top plate must be given by  vector E top  = Q/ 2 A . By definition, this field must point from the positive to the negative plate, so the direction is downward . Finally, the force is simply obtained from F = qE , so F = Q 2 / 2 A . 002 10.0 points Given two parallel plate capacitors 1 and 2. They both have a platecharge Q and plate area A. The gap of 1 is filled with a dielectric medium with dielectric constant K 1 = 2 and the gap of 2 is filled with a dielectric constant K 2 = 4.
