if the radius of circular capacitor plates is doubled,the c of capacitor will increase by a factor of 4.explain

Expert Answer:

Dear student,
 
Capacitance = ε A / d
 
Here, in case of circular plates, A = pi r^2
 
Hence, we see that c is proportional to square of r
 
so, if  r is doubles, C increases by 4 times.
 
Hope this helps.
 
Thanking you
