Capacitance of a parallel plate air capacitor depends on

- Thickness of conducting plates
- Charge on the conducting plates
- Area of the conducting plates
- Distance of separation between the conducting plates

- C/2
- 2C
- C
- None of these

A parallel plate air capacitor with no dielectric between the plates is connected to the constant voltage source. How would capacitance and charge change if dielectric of dielectric constant K=2 is inserted between the plates. C

- C=C
_{0}/2 ; Q=2Q_{0} - C=2C

_{0 }; Q=2Q_{0}

A parallel plate capacitor of capacitance C is connected to a battery and is charged to a potential difference V. Another capacitor of capacitance 2C is similarly charged to a potential difference 2V. The charging battery is then disconnected and the capacitors are connected in parallel to each other in such a way that the positive terminal of one is connected to the negative terminal of the other. The final energy of the configuration is

- Zero
- 3CV
^{2}/2 - 25CV
^{2}/6 - 9CV
^{2}/2

Two identical conducting plates of plate area A are separated by a distance d to form a parallel plate air capacitor. Now a metal sheet of thickness d/2 is inserted between the plates of the capacitor. The ratio of capacitance before the insertion of plate and after the insertion of plate is
