Question about capacitor and dielectric

  1. Oct 17, 2007 #1
    The problem is that I am complicated what the direction of the force between capacitor and dielectric is while inserting dielectric in capacitor, when the voltage of capacitor is constant.
    Also I want to know the direction of the force, when the charge of the capacitor is constant.

    The dielectric is pulled into the capacitor in each case.
    The energy change is different, but not the force.
