A parallel-plate capacitor is designed so that the plates can be pulled apart. The capacitor is initially charged to a potential difference of 80 Volts when the plates are 1.0 mm apart. The plates are insulated so that the charge cannot leak off. What is the potential difference between the plates when they are pulled to a new separation 3.5 mm apart?
