You must design a capacitor capable of storing 4.50 × 10-7 C of charge, but you only have a 220- V power supply and two metal plates of area 0.375 m2 each. What is the largest value the plate separation can be so that you can accomplish the task?

2. Relevant equations

V = Q*d/A*epilson 0

3. The attempt at a solution

I solved for d, and got 1.62E-2 m. Again, don't know what I am doing wrong here.
