If the original electric field is 1.5 10-4 N/C and the distance is reduced to one-half the original distance, what is the magnitude of the new electric field?

  • physics -

    What distance is being reduced? Are you talking about a parallel-plate capacitor? If so, is the Voltage or the Charge maintained during the change in distance?
