When a dielectric material is introduced between the plates of a charged condenser, after disconnecting the battery, the electric field between the plates:
Explain briefly the process of charging a parallel plate capacitor when it is connected across a d.c. battery.
A capacitor of capacitance ‘C’ is charged to ‘V’ volts by a battery. After some time the battery is disconnected and the distance between the plates is doubled. Now a slab of dielectric constant, 1 < k < 2, is introduced to fill the space between the plates. How will the following be affected?
(a) The electric field between the plates of the capacitor
(b) The energy stored in thecapacitor
