Answer to Question #68744 in Electromagnetism for Christopher A.F
If the potential across two parallel plates, separated by 1.50 cm, is 12.0 volts, what is the electric field strength in volts per meter?
We can find the electric field strength from the formula: E=V/d, here, E is the electric field strength, V is the potential across two parallel plates, d is the separation between the plates. Then, we get: E=V/d=(12 V)/(0.015 m)=800 V/m. Answer: E=800 V/m.
