    Capacitor AS an energy storing device help!?

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    An air-filled parallel-plate capacitor has plate area A and plate separation d. The capacitor is connected to a battery that creates a constant voltage V.

    Question:find the energy U0 stored in the capacitor.
    Express your answer in terms of A,d ,V , and epsilon_0.


    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution
    u = (1/2)epsilon_0E^2
    [(1/2)CV^2]/Ad
    and a few others ><"
