# Figure shows a parallel-plate capacitor with plates of width b and length l. The separation between the plates is d. the plates are rigidly clamped and connected to a battery of emf V. A dielectric slab of thickness d and dielectric constant K is slowly inserted between the plates. What force should be applied on the slab to ensure that is goes slowly into the capacitor? Neglect any effect of friction or gravity.

## 1 Answer

$\large\frac{\in_0 bV^2 [K-1]}{2d}$
