I would like to know how to calculate the total capacitance for a capacitor that has a certain plate overlap area and two dielectrics in between, one being a solid state dielectric and the other one being air.

This is not a school project, I just thought about it and tried to calculate myself but failed.

So my plate area is 8000 cm2, the total distance between plates is 1mm of which 0.1 is a solid dielectric with K=100 and the rest 0.9mm is air.

If one could show the formula and the explanation with my numbers in it it would be great, that helps me understand,

thanks.
