J4-22 PARALLEL PLATE CAPACITOR WITH DIELECTRIC

Additional Info

  • ID Code: J4-22
  • Purpose: Demonstrates that inserting a dielectric into a capacitor increases the capacitance
  • Description: The parallel plate capacitor is charged by the power supply and the plates are separated, increasing the voltage between the plates. A thick dielectric sheet inserted between the plates of the capacitor results in a decrease in the voltage between the plates. Because the charge on the plates remained constant, this means that insertion of the dielectric has increased the capacitance. This allows more charge to be stored by the capacitor at the same voltage.
