# Suppose, one wishes to construct a 1.0-f capacitor using circular discs. If the separation between the discs be kept at 1.0 mm, what would be the radius of the discs?

Answer :

Given:

C = 1 F

d=1 mm

Formula used :

Capacitance is given by

Where

C is the capacitance of the capacitor

D is the separation between the capacitor plates

A is the area of a circular plate capacitor

ε₀ is the permittivity of the free space=8.85×10^{-12} F/m

A = area of the circle =.Because capacitor plates are circular discs.

=6×10^{3} m=6000 m=6 km

For the construction of 1F capacitor with 1mm separation, we need to take the radius r=6 Km.

Rate this question :

A parallel-plate capacitor has plate area 20 cm^{2}, plate separation 1.0 mm and a dielectric slab of dielectric constant 5.0 filling up the space between the plates. This capacitor is joined to a battery of emf 6.0 V through a 100 kΩ resistor. Find the energy for the capacitor 8.9 μs after the connections are made.

How many time constants will elapse before the energy stored in the capacitor reaches half of its equilibrium value in a charging RC circuit?
