Two capacitors, identical except for the dielectric material between their plates, are connected in parallel.

One has a material with a material with a dielectric constant of 2, while the other has a material with a dielectric constant of 3.

What is the dielectric constant that a material would need to have if the material were to replace the current dielectrics without changing the capacitance of the entire arrangement?
