Find the capacitance of a parrell plate capacitor in pF with A=0.04 m^2
distance of seperation between plates = 2mm relative permittivity of dielectric = 6
and permittivity of free space = 8.854x10^-12

C = (6)(8.854x10^-12)(0.04) / 0.002

= 1.06248x10^-9 F

in pF = 1062.48 pF

Thanks

1.062 pF

1.062 pF
But the answer 1.062x10^-9 isnt the same as 1.062x10^ -12 or 1.062 pF

But 1062 * 10-12 = 1.062 * 10-9

10-12 is pico, so sorry you are right. I confused nano-

no problem thanks again
