- Homework Statement:
- Finding the capacitance of two electrodes...

- Relevant Equations:
- C=εA/d

Can I get some help in answering this questions?

As I understand, for two electrodes:

C=εA/d

A = 0.01

^{2}m

^{2}

d = 0.001 m on the left and d = 0.002 m on the right.

Thus the capacitance of each part is:

__Left:__C = (εx0.01

^{2})/0.001

__Right:__C= (εx0.01

^{2})/0.002

Firstly, is this the right approach? Secondly, what next? Do you simply add the two values to get the overall capacitance?

Help greatly appreciated!
