1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A parallel-plate capacitor is connected to a 100 V battery until it is fully charged. The distance between the plates is d and the space between the plates is filled with air (k=1.0). Then, the battery is disconnected. If the distance between the plates is increased to 3d, the voltage of the capacitor will be ? 2. Relevant equations C=ɛ0*A/d C=Q/V U=QV/2 E=V/d 3. The attempt at a solution So i know that capacitance is inversely prop. to distance. so if distance is tripled then capacitance will be 1/3 C but i cannot relate that to voltage. I know the correct answer is 33V but i cannot get my head about it. I know that if i multiply 100*1/3 i will get 33V but how does multiplying capacitance (F)by volts will give me volts.
