## Homework Statement

(a) Determine the capacitance of a Teflon-filled parallel-plate capacitor having a plate area of 1.90 cm2 and insulation thickness of 0.0600 mm.

(b) Determine the maximum potential difference that can be applied to the capacitor.

kV

## Homework Equations

I THOUGHT C = [tex]\epsilon[/tex]0*A all divided by d

## The Attempt at a Solution

I did 8.85x10^-12 * 1.90 / .06x10^-3

it came up wrong.

I have to answer in pF btw.

I also have no idea how to answer part b since I can't get part a correct. Can anyone give me the equation for part b as well?Thank you so much PhysicsForums!
