A parallel plate capacitor of capacitance 20 μF is being charged by a voltage source whose potential is changing at the rate of 3 V/s. The conduction current through the connecting wires and the displacement current through the plates of the capacitor would be respectively
The correct option is B 60 μA, 60 μA
V = QC Q = CV∴ i = CdVdt = 20 μF×3 V/s =60 μA
Also, conduction current in wires is equal to displacement current between the plates of capacitor.
