1 Chapter 26 Capacitance and Dielectrics

2 Capacitors Capacitors are devices that store electric charge Examples of where capacitors are used include: radio receivers filters in power supplies to eliminate sparking in automobile ignition systems energy-storing devices in electronic flashes

3 Definition of Capacitance The capacitance, C, of a capacitor is defined as the ratio of the magnitude of the charge on either conductor to the potential difference between the conductors C Q V The SI unit of capacitance is the farad (F)

4 Makeup of a Capacitor A capacitor consists of two conductors These conductors are called plates When the conductor is charged, the plates carry charges of equal magnitude and opposite directions A potential difference exists between the plates due to the charge

5 More About Capacitance Capacitance will always be a positive quantity The capacitance of a given capacitor is constant The capacitance is a measure of the capacitor s ability to store charge The farad is a large unit, typically you will see microfarads (mf) and picofarads (pf)

6 Parallel Plate Capacitor Each plate is connected to a terminal of the battery The battery is a source of potential difference If the capacitor is initially uncharged, the battery establishes an electric field in the connecting wires

7 Parallel Plate Capacitor, cont This field applies a force on electrons in the wire just outside of the plates The force causes the electrons to move onto the negative plate This continues until equilibrium is achieved The plate, the wire and the terminal are all at the same potential At this point, there is no field present in the wire and the movement of the electrons ceases

8 Parallel Plate Capacitor, final The plate is now negatively charged A similar process occurs at the other plate, electrons moving away from the plate and leaving it positively charged In its final configuration, the potential difference across the capacitor plates is the same as that between the terminals of the battery

9 Capacitance Parallel Plates The charge density on the plates is σ = Q/A A is the area of each plate, which are equal Q is the charge on each plate, equal with opposite signs The electric field is uniform between the plates and zero elsewhere

10 Capacitance Parallel Plates, cont. The capacitance is proportional to the area of its plates and inversely proportional to the distance between the plates C Q Q Q εa o V Ed Qd / ε A d o

11 Capacitance of a Cylindrical Capacitor V = -2k e ln (b/a) l = Q/l The capacitance is Q C V 2k ln b / a e

12 Capacitance of a Spherical Capacitor The potential difference will be 1 1 V keq b a The capacitance will be C Q ab V k b a e

13 Circuit Symbols A circuit diagram is a simplified representation of an actual circuit Circuit symbols are used to represent the various elements Lines are used to represent wires The battery s positive terminal is indicated by the longer line

14 Capacitors in Parallel When capacitors are first connected in the circuit, electrons are transferred from the left plates through the battery to the right plate, leaving the left plate positively charged and the right plate negatively charged PLAY ACTIVE FIGURE

15 Capacitors in Parallel, 2 The flow of charges ceases when the voltage across the capacitors equals that of the battery The potential difference across the capacitors is the same And each is equal to the voltage of the battery V 1 = V 2 = V V is the battery terminal voltage The capacitors reach their maximum charge when the flow of charge ceases The total charge is equal to the sum of the charges on the capacitors Q total = Q 1 + Q 2

16 Capacitors in Parallel, 3 The capacitors can be replaced with one capacitor with a capacitance of C eq The equivalent capacitor must have exactly the same external effect on the circuit as the original capacitors

17 Capacitors in Parallel, final C eq = C 1 + C 2 + C 3 + The equivalent capacitance of a parallel combination of capacitors is greater than any of the individual capacitors Essentially, the areas are combined Use the active figure to vary the battery potential and the various capacitors and observe the resulting charges and voltages on the capacitors

18 Capacitors in Series When a battery is connected to the circuit, electrons are transferred from the left plate of C 1 to the right plate of C 2 through the battery PLAY ACTIVE FIGURE

19 Capacitors in Series, 2 As this negative charge accumulates on the right plate of C 2, an equivalent amount of negative charge is removed from the left plate of C 2, leaving it with an excess positive charge All of the right plates gain charges of Q and all the left plates have charges of +Q

20 Capacitors in Series, 3 An equivalent capacitor can be found that performs the same function as the series combination The charges are all the same Q 1 = Q 2 = Q

21 Capacitors in Series, final The potential differences add up to the battery voltage ΔV tot = V 1 + V 2 + The equivalent capacitance is C C C C eq The equivalent capacitance of a series combination is always less than any individual capacitor in the combination

22 What is C eff for the circuit? μf 2. 11/6 μf 3. 6/11 μf μf μf 20% 20% 20% 20% 20% 0 of

23 Equivalent Capacitance, Example The 1.0-mF and 3.0-mF capacitors are in parallel as are the 6.0- mf and 2.0-mF capacitors These parallel combinations are in series with the capacitors next to them The series combinations are in parallel and the final equivalent capacitance can be found

24 Energy in a Capacitor Overview Consider the circuit to be a system Before the switch is closed, the energy is stored as chemical energy in the battery When the switch is closed, the energy is transformed from chemical to electric potential energy

25 Energy in a Capacitor Overview, cont The electric potential energy is related to the separation of the positive and negative charges on the plates A capacitor can be described as a device that stores energy as well as charge

26 Energy Stored in a Capacitor Assume the capacitor is being charged and, at some point, has a charge q on it The work needed to transfer a charge from one plate to the other is q dw Vdq dq C The total work required is W Q 2 C Q q dq 0 C 2

27 Energy, cont The work done in charging the capacitor appears as electric potential energy U: 2 Q 1 1 ( ) 2 U Q V C V 2C 2 2 This applies to a capacitor of any geometry The energy stored increases as the charge increases and as the potential difference increases In practice, there is a maximum voltage before discharge occurs between the plates

28 Energy, final The energy can be considered to be stored in the electric field For a parallel-plate capacitor, the energy can be expressed in terms of the field as U = ½ (ε o Ad)E 2 It can also be expressed in terms of the energy density (energy per unit volume) u E = ½ e o E 2

29 Some Uses of Capacitors Defibrillators When cardiac 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

30 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

31 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

32 What will happen to the electric field between the plates 1. It will increase in strength 2. It will decrease in strength 3. It will remain the same 33% 33% 33% 0 of

33 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

34 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

35 What happens to the potential when a dielectric is present? 1. The potential increases 2. The potential decreases 3. The potential remains the same 33% 33% 33% 0 of

36 What happens to the capacitance? 1. The capacitance increases 2. The capacitance decreases 3. The capacitance remains the same 33% 33% 33% 0 of

37 Capacitors with Dielectrics A dielectric is a nonconducting material that, when placed between the plates of a capacitor, increases the capacitance Dielectrics include rubber, glass, and waxed paper With a dielectric, the capacitance becomes C = κc o The capacitance increases by the factor κ when the dielectric completely fills the region between the plates κ is the dielectric constant of the material

38 Dielectrics, cont For a parallel-plate capacitor, C = κε o (A/d) 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

39 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

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

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

43 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

44 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

45 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

46 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

47 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

48 Electric Dipole, final The magnitude of the torque is: t = 2Fa sin θ pe sin θ The torque can also be expressed as the cross product of the moment and the field: t p 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 cos θ f U = - pe cos θ U pe

49 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

50 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

51 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

52 Induced Polarization A linear symmetric 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

53 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

54 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
