Apply an Electric Field

Some LOCAL ordering Larger Scale Ordering

Net effect REDUCES the field

Non-Polar Material

Effective Charge is

REDUCED

We can measure the C of a capacitor (later)

C0 = Vacuum or air Value

C = With dielectric in place

C=kC0

(we show this later)

How to Check This

Charge to V0 and then disconnect from

The battery.

C0

V0

Connect the two together

V

C0 will lose some charge to the capacitor with the dielectric.

We can measure V with a voltmeter (later).

V

Checking the idea..

Note: When two Capacitors are the same (No dielectric), then V=V0/2.

Messing with Capacitors

The battery means that the

potential difference across

the capacitor remains constant.

For this case, we insert the dielectric but hold the voltage constant,

q=CV

since C  kC0

qk kC0V

THE EXTRA CHARGE COMES FROM THE BATTERY!

Remember – We hold V constant with the battery.

Another Case
• We charge the capacitor to a voltage V0.
• We disconnect the battery.
• We slip a dielectric in between the two plates.
• We look at the voltage across the capacitor to see what happens.

When the dielectric is inserted, no charge

is added so the charge must be the same.

Remove the Battery

The Voltage across the

capacitor remains V0

q remains the same as
