Homework Help: Capacitance (tricky)

Posted by andrew on Saturday, November 3, 2012 at 1:18am.

Two parallel plates of area 41 cm.^2 have equal but opposite charges of 2.60E-07 C. Within the dielectric material filling the space between the plates, the electric field is 5.80E+05 V./m. Find the dielectric constant of the material.


Feel like there is a huge lack of information to solve this problem, cannot find the distance separated, capacitance initially or anything of that sort
