Question #40933

An air-filled parallel-plate capacitor has a capacitance of 1 pF. The plate separation

is then doubled and a wax dielectric is inserted, completely filling the space between the

plates. As a result, the capacitance becomes 2 pF. The dielectric constant of the wax is:

A. 0.25

B. 0.5

C. 2.0

D. 4.0

E. 8.0
