Parallel Grouping -

C_{eq}=C_{1}+C_{2}+\cdots

- wherein

 

C_{before}= \frac{E_{0}A}{3} \, \, \, \, \, \, -(i)

C_{after}= \frac{k\frac{\epsilon_{0}A}{3} \ \frac{\epsilon_{0}A}{2.4}}{k\frac{\epsilon_{0}A}{3}+ \frac{\epsilon_{0}A}{2.4}}\, \, \, \, \, \, -(ii)

\therefore Equation (i) and (ii)

\frac{\epsilon_{0}4}{3}= \frac{k\frac{\epsilon_{0}A}{3} \ \frac{\epsilon_{0}A}{2.4}}{k\frac{\epsilon_{0}A}{3}+ \frac{\epsilon_{0}A}{2.4}}\, \, \, \, \, \,

\Rightarrow \, 3k= 2.4k + 3\, \, \, \, \, \, \, or \, \, \, \, \, \, 0.6k=3

\therefore k = \frac{3}{0.6}\, \, \, \, \, \, , k= 5
