You have aluminum foil and wax paper and you want to make a capacitator.
a- describe how you would make a capacitator and and then estimate all appropriate dimensions in order to estimate the capacitance of your design, in Farads.
b- Say you connect your capacitator to a 9volt battery, so that the potential difference between each side is 9 volts. (V) Find the amount of excess charge on each side of the capacitator.
C= lQl/ delta V
The Attempt at a Solution
a- I don't even know how to approach this problem. I would assume that the aluminum can be used as the positive and the wax paper can be used as the negative. Maybe we can twist off strips of the aluminum foil and use them as conducting wires? We would need to measure the distance between the [+] and [-] sources. I am totally lost
b- I don't know
