FAQs on DC Pandey Solutions: Capacitors- 1 - DC Pandey Solutions for NEET Physics

1. What is the formula for the capacitance of a parallel plate capacitor?
Ans. The formula for the capacitance of a parallel plate capacitor is C = (ε₀A)/d, where C is the capacitance, ε₀ is the permittivity of free space, A is the area of the plates, and d is the distance between the plates.
2. How does the capacitance of a capacitor change if the distance between the plates is increased?
Ans. If the distance between the plates of a capacitor is increased, the capacitance decreases. This is because the electric field between the plates weakens, resulting in a decrease in the ability of the capacitor to store charge.
3. What is dielectric material and how does it affect the capacitance of a capacitor?
Ans. A dielectric material is an insulating material that is placed between the plates of a capacitor. It increases the capacitance of the capacitor by reducing the electric field between the plates. The dielectric material has a higher permittivity than air or vacuum, allowing it to store more charge.
4. How does the capacitance of a capacitor change if the area of the plates is increased?
Ans. If the area of the plates of a capacitor is increased, the capacitance also increases. This is because a larger plate area allows for more charge storage and a stronger electric field between the plates.
5. What happens to the energy stored in a capacitor when it is connected to a battery?
Ans. When a capacitor is connected to a battery, it charges up and stores electrical energy. The energy stored in the capacitor is equal to the work done by the battery in moving the charge from one plate to the other. This energy can be later released when the capacitor is disconnected from the battery.
