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!
