(a) You find that if you place charges of $\pm 1.25 \mu \mathrm{C}$ on two separated metal objects, the potential difference between them is 11.3 $\mathrm{V}$ . What is their capacitance? (b) A capacitor has a capacitance of 7.28$\mu \mathrm{F}$ . What amount of excess charge must be placed on each of its plates to make the potential difference between the plates equal to 25.0 $\mathrm{V}$ ?

a) $1.1 \times 10^{-7} \mathrm{F}$b) $1.82 \times 10^{-4} \mathrm{C}$

In physics, potential energy is the energy possessed by a body or a system due to its position relative to others, stresses within itself, electric charge, and other factors. The unit for energy in the International System of Units (SI) is the joule (J). One joule is the energy expended (or work done) in applying a force of one newton through a distance of one metre (1 newton metre). The term potential energy was introduced by the 19th century Scottish engineer and physicist William Rankine, although it has links to Greek philosopher Aristotle's concepts of potentiality. Potential energy is associated with forces that act on a body in a way that the work done by these forces on the body depends only on the initial and final positions of the body, and not on the specific path between them. These forces, that are called potential forces, can be represented at every point in space by vectors expressed as gradients of a scalar function called potential. Potential energy is the energy of an object. It is the energy by virtue of a position relative to other objects. Potential energy is associated with restoring forces such as a spring or the force of gravity. The action of stretching the spring or lifting the mass is performed by a force that works against the force field of the potential. This work is stored in the field, which is said to be stored as potential energy.

In physics, electric flux is a measure of the quantity of electric charge passing through a surface. It is used in the study of electromagnetic radiation. The SI unit of electric flux is the weber (symbol: Wb). The electric flux through a surface is calculated by dividing the electric charge passing through the surface by the area of the surface, and multiplying by the permittivity of free space (the permittivity of vacuum is used in the case of a vacuum). The electric flux through a closed surface is zero, by Gauss's law.

insist Question. We have a parallel plate capacitor and we find that Wei have a charge of Q connective tissue on two sides of paranoid capacitor Is that we have this voted JJ across said it can be assumed his uniform. So in part A What we find is that if we place the church off one point, you five new couldn't on both separate mental objects. So potential different is 11 point survivals is in. We won't you know what is a capacitor so the capacitance can calculated using the formula C equals Q over B. So we already know what curious and we already know what he is. If we put everything into sa units, we can substitutes outnumbers into the expression to find the final answer of it. So what we will find is 1.11 times 10 to subjective seven ferret in part B. We have This has way around. We've already knows it. The capacities is 7.28 beautiful arent and we want to know how much Astra charge has to be put out his a plate to make the potential difference to be 25 votes. So in order to desist. We want to have Q because si tam see? So this is the same equation. Just arranged a different way. So see is 7.28 times, 10 to the negative six parent and he is 25 votes. So were my two pleasant together, would get 1.82 times 10 to the negative for Colin or, if we want to put it in the equipment. It's 182 new cool. Um, so that is a lot of ex church we have to put out your capacity. Is tio onto the capacitor to get voted of 25 votes.
