Description

Click-drag the dielectric blocks, dielectric constants k1= 4.0 and k2 respectively, into the capacitor (charge given in mC and position given in centimeters). 

Question

  What is k2?  You can measure the electric field at any point by click-dragging.  Note: There is a 1-5% intrinsic error in the calculation of charge.  Start

Answer
