A 100 parallel plate capacitor having plate separation of 4 mm is charged by 200 V dc. The source is now disconnected. When the distance between the plates is doubled and a dielectric slab of thickness 4 mm and dielectric constant 5 is introduced between the plates, how will (i) its capacitance, (ii) the electric field between the plates, and (iii) energy density of the capacitor get affected? Justify your answer in each case.
The effective separation between the plates with air in between is
(i) new capacitance
(ii) The charge remains the same. There fore new voltage
(iii) Energy density
As the electric field has decreased the energy density also decreases since the energy density
