A parallel-plate capacitor has plates with equal and opposite charges Q, separated by a distance d, and is not connected to a battery. The plates are pulled apart to a distance D > d. What happens?

1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. V increases, Q increases V decreases, Q increases V is the same, Q increases V increases,Q is the same V decreases, Q is thesame V is the same, Q is the same V increases, Q decreases V decreases, Q decreases V is the same,Q decreases

P09 - 1

Answer: 4. V increases, Q is the same With no battery connected to the plates the charge on them has no possibility of changing. In this situation, the electric field doesnt change when you change the distance between the plates, so: V=Ed As d increases, V increases.

P09 - 2

A parallel-plate capacitor has plates with equal and opposite charges Q, separated by a distance d, and is connected to a battery. The plates are pulled apart to a distance D > d. What happens?

1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. V increases, Q increases V decreases, Q increases V is the same, Q increases V increases, Q is the same V decreases, Q is the same V is the same, Q is the same V increases, Q decreases V decreases, Q decreases V is the same, Q decreases

P09 - 3

Answer: 9. V is the same, Q decreases With a battery connected to the plates the potential V between them is held constant In this situation, since V=Ed As d increases, E must decrease. Since the electric field is proportional to the charge on the plates, Q must decrease as well.

P09 - 4

A parallel-plate capacitor, disconnected from a battery, has plates with equal and opposite charges, separated by a distance d. Suppose the plates are pulled apart until separated by a distance D > d. How does the final electrostatic energy stored in the capacitor compare to the initial energy?

1. The final stored energy is smaller 2. The final stored energy is larger 3. Stored energy does not change.

P09 - 5

Answer: 2. The stored energy increases As you pull apart the capacitor plates you increase the amount of space in which the E field is non-zero and hence increase the stored energy. Where does the extra energy come from? From the work you do pulling the plates apart.

P09 - 6
