Therefore, CP is greater than either C1 or C2. Thus, when the capacitors are connected in parallel, the greater capacitance leads to a smaller reactance (C is in the denominator in Equation 23.2), which in turn leads to a greater current. As a result, the current delivered by the generator increases when the second capacitor is connected in parallel with the first capacitor. The capacitance of a parallel plate capacitor is given by C = κε0A/d (Equation 19.10), where κ is the dielectric constant of the material between the plates, ε0 is the permittivity of free space, A is the area of each plate, and d is the separation between the plates. When the capacitor is empty, κ = 1, so that C = κ Cempty. Thus, the capacitance increases when the dielectric material is inserted. SOLUTION Using Equation 23.1 to express the current as Irms = Vrms/XC and Equation 23.2 to express the capacitive reactance as XC = 1/(2π f C), we have for the current that I rms = V rms XC = V rms b 1 / 2π f C = gV rms 2π f C Applying this result to the case where the empty capacitor C1 is connected alone to the generator and to the case where the “full” capacitor C2 (which contains the dielectric material) is connected in parallel with C1, we obtain I1, rms = V 2π f C1 1444 rms 2444 3 C1 alone and I P, rms = V 2π f CP 1444rms 2444 3 C1 and C2 in parallel Dividing the two expressions gives I P, rms I 1, rms = V rms 2 π f C P V rms 2 π f C1 = CP C1 According to Equation 20.18, the equivalent capacitance of the two capacitors in parallel is CP = C1 + C2, so that the result for the current ratio becomes 1246 ALTERNATING CURRENT CIRCUITS I P, rms I 1, rms = C1 + C 2 C1 = 1+ C2 C1 Since the capacitance of a filled capacitor is given by Equation 19.10 as C = κε0A/d, we find that I P, rms κε A / d = 1+ 0 = 1+κ I 1, rms ε0A/d Solving for IP, rms gives b gb b gg I P, rms = I 1, rms 1 + κ = 0.22 A 1 + 4 .2 = 1.1 A 7. REASONING The capacitance C is related to the capacitive reactance XC and the frequency f via Equation 23.2 as C = 1/(2π fXC). The capacitive reactance, in turn is related to the rms-voltage Vrms and the rms-current Irms by XC = Vrms/Irms (see Equation 23.1). Thus, the capacitance can be written as C = Irms/(2π fVrms). The magnitude of the maximum charge q on one plate of the capacitor is, from Equation 19.8, the product of the capacitance C and the peak voltage V. SOLUTION a. Recall that the rms-voltage Vrms is related to the peak voltage V by Vrms = V 2 . The capacitance is, then, C= I rms 2 π f V rms = 3.0 A b 2 π 750 Hz = FJ g1402V I GK H 6.4 × 10 −6 F b. The maximum charge on one plate of the capacitor is c b hg q = CV = 6.4 × 10 −6 F 140 V = 8. 9 .0 × 10 −4 C REASONING AND SOLUTION Equations 23.1 and 23.2 indicate that the rms current in a capacitor is I = V / X C , where V is the rms voltage and X C = 1 / 2 π f C . Therefore, the current is I = V 2 π f C . For a single capacitor C = C1 , and we have b I = V 2 π f C1 g Chapter 23 Problems 1247 For two capacitors in series, Equation 20.19 indicates that the equivalent capacitance can be obtained from C –1 = C1–1 + C 2–1 , which can be solved to show that C = C1 C2 / C1 + C2 . The total series current is, then, C1 C 2 I series = V 2 π f C = V 2 π f C1 + C 2 c F G H h I J K The series current is one-third of the current I. It follows, therefore, that I series I V 2π f = FC C I G +C J C H K= 1 2 1 C2 2 V 2 π f C1 C1 + C 2 = 1 3 or C1 C2 =2 For two capacitors in parallel, Equation 20.18 indicates that the equivalent capacitance is C = C1 + C 2 . The total current in this case is c I parallel = V 2 π f C = V 2 π f C1 + C2 h The ratio of Iparallel to the current I in the single capacitor is I parallel I 9. c V 2 π f C1 + C 2 = V 2 π f C1 SSM REASONING respectively, h= C1 + C2 C1 = 1+ C2 C1 = 1+ 1 = 2 3 2 The individual reactances are given by Equations 23.2 and 23.4, 1 2π f C Capacitive reactance XC = Inductive reactance X L = 2π f L When the reactances are equal, we have X C = X L , from which we find 1 = 2π f L 2π f C or 4 π 2 f 2 LC = 1 The last expression may be solved for the frequency f. 1248 ALTERNATING CURRENT CIRCUITS Solving for f with L = 52 × 10−3 H and C = 76 × 10−6 F, we obtain SOLUTION f= 1 2π LC = 1 2 π (52 × 10 –3 H) (76 × 10 –6 = 8.0 × 10 1 Hz F) 10. REASONING The rms voltage Vrms across the inductor is given by Vrms = I rms X L (Equation 23.3), where Irms is the rms current in the circuit, and XL is the inductive reactance. The inductor is the only circuit element connected to the generator, so the rms voltage across the inductor is equal to the rms generator voltage: Vrms = 15.0 V. SOLUTION Solving Equation 23.3 for XL, we obtain XL = Vrms I rms = 15.0 V = 24.6 Ω 0.610 A 11. REASONING AND SOLUTION We know that V = IXL = I(2π fL) = (0.20 A)(2π)(750 Hz)(0.080 H) = 75 V 12.
