2. The most confusing is the voltage and the enegry required to move certain things. I am still a little confussed with the circuit curaint portion. I find #4 to be very confusing just due to the fact that I am not fully understanding the process of how everything works with this yet. i didn't really understand #4 i don't think it's labeled very well I am concerned that I should be reading something prior to these preflights because I have no knowledge about any of the material in this preflight. the idea of a capacitance I think I just need to here the difference between V,Q,E,and what happens when a current passes through a capacitor. right now, all of it is confusing. I am very confused about circuits. I have tried to read the text on them, but it is very confusing and we have not discussed them in class. I am not certain of my answers, and I look forward to going over these in class. It is hard to visualize how capacitors will work together in a circuit. I dno't quite understand how the potential energy changes. There are an awful lot of variables to keep track of at this point, which makes things fairly confusing for me. I like learning about capacitors because they are used in a lot of things and it's nice to know how they work.

3. Capacitance Practice Example How much charge is on a 0.9 F capacitor which has a potential difference of 200 Volts? Q = CV = (0.9)(200) = 180 Coulombs How much energy is stored in this capacitor? U = ½ Q V = ½ (180) (200) = 18,000 Joules!

4. Example Parallel Plate CapacitorC = e0A/d Calculate the capacitance of a parallel plate capacitor made from two large square metal sheets 1.3 m on a side, separated by 0.1 m. A A d

5. + + + + - - - - -q +q d pull pull A parallel plate capacitor is given a charge q. The plates are then pulled a small distance further apart. What happens to the charge q on each plate of the capacitor? • Increases • Constant • Decreases

6. + + + + - - - - -q +q d pull pull A parallel plate capacitor is given a charge q. The plates are then pulled a small distance further apart. What happens to the charge q on each plate of the capacitor? • Increases • Constant • Decreases Remember charge is real/physical. There is no place for the charges to go.

7. + + + + - - - - -q +q d pull pull Preflight 5.1 A parallel plate capacitor is given a charge q. The plates are then pulled a smalldistance further apart. Which of the following apply to the situation after the plates have been moved? 1)The capacitance increases True False 2)The electric field increases True False 3)The voltage between the plates increases True False 4)The energy stored in the capacitor increases True False 40% C = e0A/d C decreases! 50% E= Q/(e0A) Constant 55% V= Ed 70% U = ½QV

8. Preflight 5.2 Two identical parallel plate capacitors are shown in end-view in A) of the figure. Each has a capacitance of C. B ) A ) If the two are joined as in (B) of the figure, forming a single capacitor, what is the final capacitance? 1) 2C 2) C 3) C/2 70% 25% 5%

9. Example Parallel Practice A 4 mF capacitor and 6 mF capacitor are connected in parallel and charged to 5 volts. Calculate Ceq, and the charge on each capacitor. = 4 mF+6 mF = 10 mF Ceq = C4+C6 Q4 = C4 V4 = (4 mF)(5 V) = 20 mC = (6 mF)(5 V) = 30 mC Q6 = C6 V6 = (10 mF)(5 V) = 50 mC Qeq = Ceq Veq = Q4+ Q6 V = 5 V 5 V 5 V 5 V C4 C6 Ceq 0 V 0 V 0 V Physics 1161: Lecture 4, Slide 9

11. C1 C1 C2 C2 Comparison:Series vs. Parallel • Series • Can follow a wire from one element to the other with no branches in between. • Parallel • Can find a loop of wire containing both elements but no others (may have branches).
