Capacitors Worksheet

1. a) Define Capacitance.

and C2 still in series, are discharged through an 80k

resistor. The time constant for the discharge is found to be

4.8s. Calculate

insulator, should completely fill the gap between the plates,

similar cross-sectional area as the capacitor]

c) A sheet of paper 40mm wide and 1.5 x 10-2m thick

between metal foil of the same width is used to make 2F

capacitor. If the dielectric constant (relative permittivity) of

the paper is 2.5, what is the length required? (given: 0=

8.85 x 10-12 Fm-1) [ l = 0.34m]

through a resistor, the circuit shown below was set up. The

battery had an e.m.f of 10V and negligible internal

resistance. The switch was first closed and the capacitor

allowed to charge fully. The switch was then opened (at

t=0s) and the graph shows how the milliammeter reading

subsequently changed with time.

Explain how you arrived at your answer. [between 90mC to

100mC; I used 92mF]

using a two-way switch K. The capacitor C is then discharged

through the resistor R. The graph shows how the current in

the resistor R changes with time.
