1. greater than

2. the same as

3. smaller than

it would have been if the dielectric were left in place.

U= 1/2 (K)[tex]E[/tex]Ad E^2

K= dielectric constant

[tex]E[/tex]= 8.85X10^-12

i would think that when the dielectric is removed that the electrostatic energy stored in the capacitor would be smaller than when the dielectric is in the capacitor assuming that K>1? but i have been informed that my thinking is incorrect. Any help would be appreciated.
