Title: Capacitors
Post by: kennethkyho on February 11, 2009, 09:49:22 pm
what is the structure of the dielectric in between the two metal plates?
why is it better to use dielectric instead of the insulator as the materials between two plates?
how is the change in distribution of the electrons in the dielectric during the charging and discharging of the capacitor?

Good conductor is not a good dielectric material.
A good dielectric material is also an insulator, but the atom in the dielectric material are polarized when it is inside a charged capacitor. This is a standard physics textbook content.

it will be a slow process ( only you and few others willing to share ?), but i think your applets are well designed, just abit more people to help complement the applets, it will nurture this forum to becoming closer to being a learning community of educators and students.
