Answer :

Parallel plate capacitor: When two conducting plates are connected in parallel and separated by some distance then parallel plate capacitor will be formed.


Radius r= 5cm

Separation between the plates is

Formula used:

Capacitance is given by the formula


C is the capacitance of the capacitor

ε is the permittivity of free space =

A is the area of the circle m2

Because capacitor plates are made of circular discs)

d is the separation between the plates

Putting the values in the above relation, we get

Capacitance is of a circular disc parallel plate capacitor
