Capacitance?T_T help needed

  1. Dec 6, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    WHat's thd capacitance of two parallel metal plates each with an area of 100cm^2 separated by 1.0mm if the gap is filled with glass having a dialectric constant of 10?

    2. Relevant equations
    C= EoA/d

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I don't know how to use dialectric constant in the equation...

    Please help ASAP THank you so much!!
