Question

# A parallel plate capacitor with plate area A and separation between the plates $$d$$, is charged by a constant current $$i$$. Consider a plane surface of area $$\dfrac{A}{2}$$ parallel to the plate and down symmetrically between the plates. Find the displacement current through this area.

A
id=i8
B
id=i2
C
id=i3
D
id=i4

Solution

## The correct option is B $$i_d= \dfrac{i}{2}$$Displacement current $$=\dfrac{dQ}{dt}=\dfrac{d(CV)}{dt}$$$$=C\dfrac{dV}{dt}=C(d.\dfrac{dE}{dt})$$$$=\dfrac{A\epsilon_0}{d}.d\dfrac{dE}{dt}$$$$=A\epsilon_0\dfrac{dE}{dt}\propto A$$Hence, current halves when area of plates halves.Physics
