A series circuit is built with a resistor and a parallel-plate capacitor withdiameter electrodes. Asource drives a peak current ofthrough the circuit. What is the spacing between the capacitor plates?

The spacing between capacitor plate is

We are given that resistance , diameter of parallel plate capacitor as.The voltageand frequencyof source is given . We are given that peak current equals to .We need to find spacing between capacitor plates.

We know that capacitance between parallel plate capacitor is given by the formula ,

Here is separation between plates. We need to find the value of , for that matter , we need to calculate capacitance ,

Now we need to find impedance,

Putting the value of impedance , we get

We get capacitance as,

So separation comes out to be
