A parallel plane capacitor with conducting plates area [tex]\Sigma[/tex]= 400cm^{2}, distant d=5mm, is half filled of mica (k_{1}=5) and half filled of paraffin (k_{2}=2). Calculate:

a) C (Capacitance of the capacitor)

...others

2. Relevant equations

None

3. The attempt at a solution

I haven't got too many problems solving this exercise but i just don't know how to get to the correct result of k (relative dielectric constant) when there's more than one dielectric in a parallel plate capacitor.
