2.5) A parallel plate capacitor with air between the plates has a capacitance of 8 pF \left ( 1pF = 10^{-12}F \right ). What will be the capacitance if the distance between the plates is reduced by half, and the space between them is filled with a substance of dielectric constant 6?

As we know,

C=\frac{\epsilon_r\epsilon_0 A}{d}

where A= area of the plate

   \epsilon_0 = permittivity of the free space

d = distance between the plates.

Now, Given 

The capacitance between plates initially

 C_{initial}=8pF=\frac{\epsilon A}{d}

Now, Capacitance when the distance is reduced  half  and filled with the substance of dielectric 6

C_{final}=\frac{6\epsilon_0 A}{d/2}=12\frac{\epsilon _0A}{d}=12*8pF=96pF 

Hence new capacitance is 96pF.
