1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A point charge of mass 0.069 kg and charge q = +5.89 µC is suspended by a thread between the vertical parallel plates of a parallel-plate capacitor. If the angle of deflection is 22°, and the separation between the plates is 0.025 m, what is the potential difference between the plates? 2. Relevant equations U = .5C*V^2 3. The attempt at a solution I know the left has a higher potential energy because the mass is attracted toward the right?
