Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Sandra on Sunday, February 28, 2010 at 7:26am.

How does the capacitance of a parallel plate capacitor change when its plates are moved to twice their initial distance and a slab of material with dielectric constant К = 2 is placed between the plates to replace air?

I think that the capacitance would be halved, is this correct?

Also if two different capacitors (different material but all other parameters are the same except the dielectric constant) are being compared, would the one with the higher dielectric constant have a higher capacitance?
