🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Lefevre's class at UIC.

Solution: The plates of a parallel-plate capacitor are 3.0mm apart, and each plate carries 75nC of charge. The electric field between the plates has a magnitude of 3.5 x 106V/m. The plates are in vacuum. a) What is the potential difference between the plates? b) What is the capacitance? c) What is the area of each plate?

Problem
