(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The plates of a capacitor have an area of 0.4m2 and are separated by a distance of 0.5 micrometers. The material between the two plates is air with a dielectric constant of 1.0 One plate of the capacitor is given the charge of 4[tex]\muC[/tex]. The voltage across the capacitor is, in volts:

2. Relevant equations

C=[tex]\epsilon[/tex](A/d) C=q/[tex]\Delta[/tex]V

3. The attempt at a solution

So far I've been trying to calculate the capacitance with the first equation and then use the second equation for finding the change in voltage. I keep coming up with the wrong answer, though. Help please!
