Two parallel conducting plates are connected to a battery, one plate to the positive terminal and the other plate to the negative. The plate separation is gradually increased, the plates remaining connected to the battery.
Which graph shows how the electric field E between the plates depends on the plate separation x?
The electric field strength between a pair of parallel plates is E. The separation of the plates is doubled and the potential difference between the plates is increased by a factor of four.
What is the new electric field strength?
Which diagram represents the electric field of a negative point charge –q?
A potential difference V is applied between two parallel plates a small distance d apart, and produces an electric field of strength E between the plates.
What is the electric field strength between the plates when both V and d are doubled?
In the circuit below, the distance between the two parallel plates is 2.0 × 10^–3 m. An electron is situated between the plates.
What is the force on the electron?
