# A Parallel Plate Air Capacitor Has a Capacitance Of 5 μF. It Becomes 50 μF When a Dielectric Medium Occupies the Entire Space Between Its Two Plates. What is the Dielectric Constant of the Medium? - Physics (Theory)

A parallel plate air capacitor has a capacitance of  5 μF. It becomes 50 μF when a dielectric medium occupies the entire space between its two plates. What is the dielectric constant of the medium?

#### Solution

We know that = KC0
∴ K = "C"/"C"_0 = 50/5 = 10

Concept: Capacitance of a Parallel Plate Capacitor with and Without Dielectric Medium Between the Plates
