    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Hey guys.
    So, I got this problem.
    According to their hint I'm suppose to calculate the work of moving one of the plates and from their, get to the force.
    I don't have a clue how to do that. I can't find a single formula that can help with that.
    Can I please have some help...?:smile:
