Top plate Bottom plate + Q Q Plate area is A d E gap Denote the magnitude of the attractive force by which the charge of the top plate pulls on the charge of the bottom plate by F , and denote the electric field vector due to the charges on the top plate by vector E top . Find i) the magnitude F of the force; ii) the magnitude of vector E top at the bottom plate; and iii) the direction of vector E top . indicates downward and indicates upward. 1.

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 0.0 points Given two parallel plate capacitors 1 and 2. They both have a plate-charge 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.
