Mastering Physics Solutions: Force between Capacitor Plates

Force between Capacitor Plates

Part A = F(V) = 1/2 * Aε0(V^2 / d^2)

Solution Below:

Consider a parallel-plate capacitor with plates of area A and with separation d.

Part A

Find F(V), the magnitude of the force each plate experiences due to the other plate as a function of V, the potential drop across the capacitor.

F(V) = 1/2 * Aε0(V^2 / d^2)
