Here is the answer for the question – **Suppose two parallel-plate capacitors have the same charge Q, but the area of capacitor 1 is A and the area of capacitor 2 is 2A.**. You’ll find the correct answer below

### Suppose two parallel-plate capacitors have the same charge Q, but the area of capacitor 1 is A and the area of capacitor 2 is 2A.

if the spacing between the plates in capacitor 1 is d what should the spacing between the plates in capacitor 2 be to make the capacitance of the two capacitors =

**The Correct Answer is**

**2d**

### Reason Explained

2d is correct for Suppose two parallel-plate capacitors have the same charge Q, but the area of capacitor 1 is A and the area of capacitor 2 is 2A.

- This problem explores the behavior of charge on conductors. We take as an example a long conducting rod suspended by insulating strings. Assume that the rod is initially electrically neutral. For convenience we will refer to the left end of the rod as end A, and the right end of the rod as end B. In the answer options for this problem, “strongly attracted/repelled” means “attracted/repelled with a force of magnitude similar to that which would exist between two charged balls. - July 12, 2022
