2 Some Uses of Capacitors Defibrillators When fibrillation occurs, the heart produces a rapid, irregular pattern of beats A fast discharge of electrical energy through the heart can return the organ to its normal beat pattern In general, capacitors act as energy reservoirs that can be slowly charged and then discharged quickly to provide large amounts of energy in a short pulse

3 Capacitors with Dielectrics A dielectric is a nonconducting material that, when placed between the plates of a capacitor, increases the capacitance Dielectrics include rubber, plastic, and waxed paper For a parallel-plate capacitor, C = κc o = κε o (A/d) The capacitance is multiplied by the factor κ when the dielectric completely fills the region between the plates

4 Dielectrics, cont In theory, d could be made very small to create a very large capacitance In practice, there is a limit to d d is limited by the electric discharge that could occur though the dielectric medium separating the plates For a given d, the maximum voltage that can be applied to a capacitor without causing a discharge depends on the dielectric strength of the material

5 Dielectrics, final Dielectrics provide the following advantages: Increase in capacitance Increase the maximum operating voltage Possible mechanical support between the plates This allows the plates to be close together without touching This decreases d and increases C

6 Dielectrics If we insert an insulating material (dielectric) between the two conductors the capacitance increases dielectric Let C 0 = capacitance with no dielectric (vacuum) Let C = capacitance with dielectric Definition of dielectric constant (K)

7

8 Capacitor with and without dielectric Capacitance in vacuum C 0 Capacitance with dielectric C=KC 0 Suppose we put the same charge Q on the two capacitors (with and without dielectric) Voltages with and without V and V 0 Q=C 0 V 0 and Q=CV For a given charge, the voltage across a capacitor is reduced in the presence of dielectric

9 Types of Capacitors Tubular Metallic foil may be interlaced with thin sheets of paper or Mylar The layers are rolled into a cylinder to form a small package for the capacitor

10 Types of Capacitors Oil Filled Common for highvoltage capacitors A number of interwoven metallic plates are immersed in silicon oil

11 Types of Capacitors Electrolytic Used to store large amounts of charge at relatively low voltages The electrolyte is a solution that conducts electricity by virtue of motion of ions contained in the solution

12 Types of Capacitors Variable Variable capacitors consist of two interwoven sets of metallic plates One plate is fixed and the other is movable These capacitors generally vary between 10 and 500 pf Used in radio tuning circuits

13 Capacitor types Capacitors are often classified by the materials used between electrodes Some types are air, paper, plastic film, mica, ceramic, electrolyte, and tantalum Often you can tell them apart by the packaging Plastic Film Capacitor Ceramic Capacitor Tantalum Capacitor Electrolyte Capacitor

14 Electric Dipole An electric dipole consists of two charges of equal magnitude and opposite signs The charges are separated by 2a The electric dipole moment (p) is directed along the line joining the charges from q to +q

15 Electric Dipole, 2 The electric dipole moment has a magnitude of p = 2aq Assume the dipole is placed in a uniform external field, E E is external to the dipole; it is not the field produced by the dipole Assume the dipole makes an angle θ with the field

16 Electric Dipole, 3 Each charge has a force of F = Eq acting on it The net force on the dipole is zero The forces produce a net torque on the dipole

17 Electric Dipole, final The magnitude of the torque is: τ = 2Fa sin θ = pe sin θ The torque can also be expressed as the cross product of the moment and the field: τ = p x E The potential energy can be expressed as a function of the orientation of the dipole with the field: U f U i = pe(cos θ i cosθ f ) U = - pe cos θ = - p E

18 Polar vs. Nonpolar Molecules Molecules are said to be polarized when a separation exists between the average position of the negative charges and the average position of the positive charges Polar molecules are those in which this condition is always present Molecules without a permanent polarization are called nonpolar molecules

19 Water Molecules A water molecule is an example of a polar molecule The center of the negative charge is near the center of the oxygen atom The x is the center of the positive charge distribution

20 Polar Molecules and Dipoles The average positions of the positive and negative charges act as point charges Therefore, polar molecules can be modeled as electric dipoles

21 Induced Polarization A symmetrical molecule has no permanent polarization (a) Polarization can be induced by placing the molecule in an electric field (b) Induced polarization is the effect that predominates in most materials used as dielectrics in capacitors

22 Dielectrics An Atomic View The molecules that make up the dielectric are modeled as dipoles The molecules are randomly oriented in the absence of an electric field

23 Dielectrics An Atomic View, 2 An external electric field is applied This produces a torque on the molecules The molecules partially align with the electric field

24 Dielectrics An Atomic View, 3 The degree of alignment of the molecules with the field depends on temperature and the magnitude of the field In general, the alignment increases with decreasing temperature the alignment increases with increasing field strength

25 Dielectrics An Atomic View, 4 If the molecules of the dielectric are nonpolar molecules, the electric field produces some charge separation This produces an induced dipole moment The effect is then the same as if the molecules were polar

26 Dielectrics An Atomic View, final An external field can polarize the dielectric whether the molecules are polar or nonpolar The charged edges of the dielectric act as a second pair of plates producing an induced electric field in the direction opposite the original electric field

27 Induced Charge and Field The electric field due to the plates is directed to the right and it polarizes the dielectric The net effect on the dielectric is an induced surface charge that results in an induced electric field If the dielectric were replaced with a conductor, the net field between the plates would be zero

43 Geometry of Some Capacitors

44 Chapter 26 Capacitance and Dielectrics

45 Quick Quiz 26.1 A capacitor stores charge Q at a potential difference ΔV. If the voltage applied by a battery to the capacitor is doubled to 2ΔV: (a) the capacitance falls to half its initial value and the charge remains the same (b) the capacitance and the charge both fall to half their initial values (c) the capacitance and the charge both double (d) the capacitance remains the same and the charge doubles

46 Quick Quiz 26.1 Answer: (d). The capacitance is a property of the physical system and does not vary with applied voltage. According to Equation 26.1, if the voltage is doubled, the charge is doubled.

47 Quick Quiz 26.2 Many computer keyboard buttons are constructed of capacitors, as shown in the figure below. When a key is pushed down, the soft insulator between the movable plate and the fixed plate is compressed. When the key is pressed, the capacitance (a) increases (b) decreases (c) changes in a way that we cannot determine because the complicated electric circuit connected to the keyboard button may cause a change in ΔV.

48 Quick Quiz 26.2 Answer: (a). When the key is pressed, the plate separation is decreased and the capacitance increases. Capacitance depends only on how a capacitor is constructed and not on the external circuit.

49 Quick Quiz 26.3 Two capacitors are identical. They can be connected in series or in parallel. If you want the smallest equivalent capacitance for the combination, you should connect them in (a) series (b) parallel (c) Either combination has the same capacitance.

50 Quick Quiz 26.3 Answer: (a). When connecting capacitors in series, the inverses of the capacitances add, resulting in a smaller overall equivalent capacitance.

51 Quick Quiz 26.4 Consider the two capacitors in question 3 again. Each capacitor is charged to a voltage of 10 V. If you want the largest combined potential difference across the combination, you should connect them in (a) series (b) parallel (c) Either combination has the same potential difference.

52 Quick Quiz 26.4 Answer: (a). When capacitors are connected in series, the voltages add, for a total of 20 V in this case. If they are combined in parallel, the voltage across the combination is still 10 V.

53 Quick Quiz 26.5 You have three capacitors and a battery. In which of the following combinations of the three capacitors will the maximum possible energy be stored when the combination is attached to the battery? (a) series (b) parallel (c) Both combinations will store the same amount of energy.

54 Quick Quiz 26.5 Answer: (b). For a given voltage, the energy stored in a capacitor is proportional to C: U = C(ΔV) 2 /2. Thus, you want to maximize the equivalent capacitance. You do this by connecting the three capacitors in parallel, so that the capacitances add.

55 Quick Quiz 26.6 You charge a parallel-plate capacitor, remove it from the battery, and prevent the wires connected to the plates from touching each other. When you pull the plates apart to a larger separation, do the following quantities increase, decrease, or stay the same? (a) C; (b) Q; (c) E between the plates; (d) ΔV ; (e) energy stored in the capacitor.

56 Quick Quiz 26.6 Answer: (a) C decreases (Eq. 26.3). (b) Q stays the same because there is no place for the charge to flow. (c) E remains constant (see Eq and the paragraph following it). (d) ΔV increases because ΔV = Q/C, Q is constant (part b), and C decreases (part a). (e) The energy stored in the capacitor is proportional to both Q and ΔV (Eq ) and thus increases. The additional energy comes from the work you do in pulling the two plates apart.

57 Quick Quiz 26.7 Repeat Quick Quiz 26.6, but this time answer the questions for the situation in which the battery remains connected to the capacitor while you pull the plates apart.

58 Quick Quiz 26.7 Answer: (a) C decreases (Eq. 26.3). (b) Q decreases. The battery supplies a constant potential difference ΔV; thus, charge must flow out of the capacitor if C = Q /ΔV is to decrease. (c) E decreases because the charge density on the plates decreases. (d) ΔV remains constant because of the presence of the battery. (e) The energy stored in the capacitor decreases (Eq ).

59 Quick Quiz 26.8 If you have ever tried to hang a picture or a mirror, you know it can be difficult to locate a wooden stud in which to anchor your nail or screw. A carpenter s stud-finder is basically a capacitor with its plates arranged side by side instead of facing one another, as shown in the figure below. When the device is moved over a stud, the capacitance will: (a) increase (b) decrease

60 Quick Quiz 26.8 Answer: (a). The dielectric constant of wood (and of all other insulating materials, for that matter) is greater than 1; therefore, the capacitance increases (Eq ). This increase is sensed by the stud-finder's special circuitry, which causes an indicator on the device to light up.

61 Quick Quiz 26.9 A fully charged parallel-plate capacitor remains connected to a battery while you slide a dielectric between the plates. Do the following quantities increase, decrease, or stay the same? (a) C; (b) Q; (c) E between the plates; (d) ΔV.

62 Quick Quiz 26.9 Answer: (a) C increases (Eq ). (b) Q increases. Because the battery maintains a constant ΔV, Q must increase if C increases. (c) E between the plates remains constant because ΔV = Ed and neither ΔV nor d changes. The electric field due to the charges on the plates increases because more charge has flowed onto the plates. The induced surface charges on the dielectric create a field that opposes the increase in the field caused by the greater number of charges on the plates (see Section 26.7). (d) The battery maintains a constant ΔV.
