(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); leakage resistance of capacitor theory help??

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

i have worked out the answer to my question, yet it seems silly so have convinced myself its wrong. Please help, or tell me if i'm being stupid if you can??

a parallel plate capacitor Er=12, length=10mm, width=5mm, C=100pF, rho=10`14.

calculate the leakage resistance of the capacitor?

2. Relevant equations

R= rho( length/area) C= (ErEo x A)/ d

3. The attempt at a solution

no idea. got as far as area 5 x 10`-5

EoEr = 1.062 x 10`-10

i just cant figure out how to get back to the capacitors leakage resistance??
