Capacitance and dielectrics- Old is Gold



  1. Distinguish between dielectric constant and dielectric strength.
  2. Distinguish between polar and non-polar dielectrics.
  3. Define dielectric constant and dielectric strength.
  4. How will you arrange 3 capacitors each having capacity of 2µF, to get a capacitor of capacity 3µF?
  5. Is dielectric constant, the same as dielectric strength? Explain with example.
  6. Explain how the capacitance of a parallel plate capacitor can be increased.
