A capacitor with a capacitance of
is connected to a battery. What is the amount of charge on each plate of the capacitor?
To find the charge on each plate of the capacitor, we can use the formula
, where is the charge, is the capacitance, and is the voltage across the capacitor. By substituting the given values, we get . Therefore, the magnitude of the charge on each plate of the capacitor is 24 microcoulombs.
