The electric field between the plates of a paper-separated (K=3.75) capacitor is 9.41E4 V/m. The plates are 1.75mm apart and the charge on each plate is 0.775E-6C. Determine the capacitance of the capacitor and the area of each plate?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I got the voltage by V=Ed. and that came out to 164.675

Where do i go from there because in order to get capacitance you need to know area, and finding the area of each plate is also a question in the problem. I thought about using C=Q/V, but that doesn't apply for dielectrics. Can someone helpme out?
