Homework Statement



Doubling the potential over a condensator, results in...

a) doubling the capacitance
b) halving the capacitance
c) doubling the charge



The Attempt at a Solution



Since C = Q/V, it's got to be either b) or c). But which?

Hint: capacitance is defined ONLY by the capacitor geometry and dieletric constant of spacer between plates.

And this is hardly advanced physics, I would classify it as introductory.
