# Solution - A Parallel Plate Capacitor is to Be Designed with a Voltage Rating 1 kv, Using a Material of Dielectric Constant 3 and Dielectric Strength About 107 Vm^−1. - The Parallel Plate Capacitor

ConceptThe Parallel Plate Capacitor

#### Question

A parallel plate capacitor is to be designed with a voltage rating 1 kV, using a material of dielectric constant 3 and dielectric strength about 107 Vm−1. (Dielectric strength is the maximum electric field a material can tolerate without breakdown, i.e., without starting to conduct electricity through partial ionisation.) For safety, we should like the field never to exceed, say 10% of the dielectric strength. What minimum area of the plates is required to have a capacitance of 50 pF?
