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

Solution: A uniform electric field is established by connecting the plates of a parallel-plate capacitor to a 12-V battery. A) If the plates are seperated by 0.75 cm, what is the magnitude of the electric field in the capacitor? B) A charge of +6.24 x 10 -6 C moves from the positive plate to the negative plate. Find the change in electric potential energy for this charge.

Problem

A uniform electric field is established by connecting the plates of a parallel-plate capacitor to a 12-V battery.

A) If the plates are seperated by 0.75 cm, what is the magnitude of the electric field in the capacitor?

B) A charge of +6.24 x 10 -6 C moves from the positive plate to the negative plate. Find the change in electric potential energy for this charge.
