1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data When a dielectric is inserted in a capacitor, why does the charge remain unchanged while the potential decreases and capacitance increase? 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution i'm not really about this one, but is it because the charges accumulate on the surface area and since surface area doesn't change after an insertion of a dielectric, the charges won't change since area didn't change? But then again.... Capacitance is a capacitors ability to hold a charge in a electric field and it increase so you can see my dilemma lol.
