Parallel plate capacitor

  • #1

Homework Statement


A 5800-nF parallel plate capacitor is connected to a 14-V battery and charged.
What is the charge Q on the positive plate of the capacitor?

Homework Equations


C = Q/V

The Attempt at a Solution


This looks like a very simple question. The capacitor is fully charged so 5800 nF = Q/(14 V)
14 V x 5800 nF = 81200 nC

The positive plate will have a +Q net charge and -Q net charge will be on the negative plate.
My answer is incorrect though.
