ConceptElectric Potential Difference

#### Question

A charge of 20 µC is placed on the positive plate of an isolated parallel-plate capacitor of capacitance 10 µF. Calculate the potential difference developed between the plates.

#### Solution

Given :
Capacitance of the isolated capacitor = 10 µF

Charge on the positive plate = 20 µC

Effective charge on the capacitor = (20-0)/2 = 10  "uC"

The potential difference between the plates of the capacitor is given by V = Q/C

therefore "Potential difference" = (10  "uC")/(10  "uF")= 1 "V"

Is there an error in this question or solution?
