1. A + 0.2 μC charge is in an electric field. What happens if that charge is replaced by a + 0.4 μC charge? (a) The electric potential doubles, but the electric potential energy stays the same. (b) The electric potential stays the same, but the electric potential energy doubles. (c)...
An electron is accelerated from rest by a potential difference of 0.20 V. How much greater would its final speed be if it is accelerated with four times as much voltage? Explain. ...
A dielectric is pulled out from between the plates of a capacitor which remains connected to a battery. What changes occur to (a) The capacitance, (b) The charge on the plates, (c) The potential difference, (d) The energy stored in the capacitor, (e) The electric field? Explain your a...
How does the energy stored in a capacitor change when a dielectric is inserted if (a) The capacitor is isolated so Q does not change; (b) The capacitor remains connected to a battery so V does not change? Explain. ...
