A parallel-plate capacitor consists of two square plates 18 Cm on a side, spaced 0.50 mm apart with only air between them. What is the maximum energy that can be stored by the capacitor?

  • Physics -

    Figure capacitance. Use your formula.

    Then figure the maximum voltage that can be on the plates in dry air (consider breakdown voltage of air, and spacing).

    Then, Energy= 1/2 C V^2

    Let me know if you have a problem on this.
