When the plates are moved apart, less charge on the plates is required to produce the same potential difference. With the separation of the plates constant, the electric field must remain constant to produce the same potential difference. The electric field depends on the surface charge density, = . To produce the same = , more charge is required when the area increases. 24-1 24-2 24.6. 24.7. Chapter 24 IDENTIFY:! C # Q !A . C# 0 . Vab d SET UP:!
