What about cardboard?

  1. Jul 22, 2004 #1
    During a lab, which i suspect got bad results, the dielectric constant of cardboard 0.00105 m thick was found. The answer in my calculations was 5.554. Does anybody know what the theoretical constant would be so i can get a % error or explain what went wrong. Thanks.
