Capacitor Values Problem

In this problem you will be asked to determine the amount of charge that is stored on a capacitor based on the physical properties of the capacitor and the power supply to which the capacitor is hooked up. You will also have to find the energy stored in the capacitor and the electric field between the plates of the capacitor.

Before you can do this, you must determine the capacitance of the air filled capacitor based on the size of the plates and the distance between the plates.
