so

C = epysilon A / d

C= (8.85x10^-12 x 5.0x10^-3)/0.002 = 2.2125x10^-11

so the capacitance of the capacitors is ^

then with a dielectric where k = 3

can i use this equation

C = epysilon A k/ d, just putting the k next to epysilon, i just read thats what you do in my book

but yeh

when i do that i get C = 6.6375x10^-11

then i just added them as parralell capacitors

but the 6.6375x10^-11 doesnt seem right to me, that formula must be wrong, is it?

i thought the dielectric made the capacitance lower
