A parallel-plate capacitor having plate area 20 cm^2 and separation between the plates 1.00 mm is connected to a battery of 12.0 V. The plates are pulled apart to increase the separation to 2.0 mm. (a) Calculate the charge flown through the circuit during the process. (b) How much energy is absorbed by the battery during the process? (c) Calculate the stored energy in the electric field before and after the process. (d) Using the expression for the force between the plates, find the work done by the person pulling the plates apart. € Show and justify that no heat is produced during this transfer of charge as the separation is increased.

Sol. area = a = 20 cm^2 = 2 × 10^–2 m^2 d = separation = 1 mm = 10^–3 m Ci = ε base 0 *2 * 10^-3/10^-3 = 2ε base 0 Cf = ε base 0 * 2 * 10^-3/2 * 10^-3 = ε base 0 q base I = 24 ε base 0 qf = 12 ε base 0 So, q flown out 12 ε base 0. Ie, q base I – q base f. (a) So, q = 12 × 8.85 × 10^–12 = 106.2 × 10^–12 C = 1.06 × 10^–10 C (b) Energy absorbed by battery during the process = q × v = 1.06 × 10^–10 C × 12 = 12.7 × 10^–10 J (c) Before the process E base i = (1/2) × Ci × v^2 = (1/2) × 2 × 8.85 × 10^–12 × 144 = 12.7 × 10^–10 J After the force E base i = (1/2) × Cf × v^2 = (1/2) × 8.85 × 10^–12 × 144 = 6.35 × 10^–10 J (d) Workdone = Force × Distance = 1/2 q^2/ε base 0A = 1 * 10^3 = 1/2*12 * 12 * ε base 0 * ε base 0 * 10^-3/ε base 0 * 2 * 10^-3 (e) From (c) and (d) we have calculated, the energy loss by the separation of plates is equal to the work done by the man on plate. Hence no heat is produced in transformer.
