Dielectric Constant by using capacitance meter

Equipment:
  1. Two circular aluminum isolated plates.
  2. Holder and track for the plates.
  3. Acrylic, wood and glass plates.
  4. Capacitance meter.
  5. Connection cables.

Description

  • In this experiment we can determine the dielectric constant (K) and the permittivity for glass, wood and acrylic sheets.
  • We can study the relation between the thickness of the dielectric material and the capacitance.
