1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Each capacitor has a plate area of 5 inches, with a distance between the plates of 10mm. The capacitor has a total Q of .002 Coulombs. 2. Relevant equations Coulombs law F=Ke X q1q2/r squared 3. The attempt at a solution I do not know how to calculate coulombs law for a capacitor since coulombs law only describes the force between 2 points. Do I need to calculate the charge distribution first? How do I do that?
