(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. A non-ideal capacitor having a ‘leaky’ dielectric where RL =1.5 x1015 which is the leakage resistance measured across the dielectric. A100 pF parallel-plate capacitor has a mica dielectric of relative permittivity år = 12 and resistivity of ñ = 1014 Ù m.

The capacitor holds a charge of 10 nC.. Estimate the time for the capacitor to completely discharge when left on open circuit and the total energy dissipated in the dielectric during

discharge.

2. unsure need advice

3. Is this possible with this data, guidance if anuone can point in right direction
