# Problem: The figure below shows four parallel plate capacitors: A, B, C, and D. Each capacitor carries the same charge q and has the same plate area A. As suggested by the figure, the plates of capacitor A and C are separated by a distance  d while those of B and D are separated by a distance 2d. Capacitors A and B are maintained in vacuum while capacitors C and D contain dieelctrics with constant k = 5. Which list below places the capacitors in order of  increasing capacitance?  A) A, B, C, D B) B, A, C, D C) A, B, D, C D) B, A, D, C E) D, C, B, A
