The energy stored in a capacitor with capacitance is
where is the voltage difference between the two plates. The effect of adding a dielectric with dielectric constant is to multiply the capacitance by . So, given that the voltage is fixed, the stored energy is increased by a factor of , becoming . The electric field between the plates is regardless of whether there is a dielectric between the plates or not. Therefore, answer (B) is correct. |
