# Answer on Electric Circuits Question for Akash Kumar kheti

Question #73805

A parallel plate capacitor is made of two rectangular aluminium sheets of lateral

dimensions 500 mm and 20 mm. The space between the plates is filled with polystyrene and the separation between plates is 0.15 mm. Calculate the capacitance

of the capacitor and the value of the maximum potential difference that can be

applied across the capacitor without dielectric breakdown. Take the dielectric

constant of polystyrene as 2.6 and the value of the maximum electric field that

polystyrene can withstand as 25×106 Vm−1 .
