## Homework Statement

A parallel plate capacitor has a capacitance of 1.5µF with air between the plates. The capacitor is connected a 12V battery and charged. The battery is then removed. When a dielectric is placed between the plates, a potential difference of 5.0V is measured across the plates. What is the dielectric constant of the material?

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

I know that Q=CV. however this is the only equation I find relevant as all the other equations I know for finding the dielectric constant involve area and distance between the plates. Can someone just help me get started with this question?
