Experiments with a charged capacitor
A capacitor and a Pendulum
We begin with an uncharged, isolated, parallel plate capacitor having its plates maintained at a fixed
distance apart and with an isolated independent voltage source. By connecting the two plates of the
uncharged capacitor momentarily to the independent voltage source and then disconnecting the
source, we are left with a charged and isolated capacitor. A small ball of cork , covered with a
conducting foil, is suspended by an insulating thread between the two plates of the capacitor as a
simple pendulum.
If the ball is initially at rest and is closer to the positive plate, it will be slightly attracted to that plate
because of induction. On contact with the positive plate, some of the plate's positive charge is
transferred to the ball by charge sharing. The positively charged ball then is repelled by the positive
plate and attracted to the negative plate. Upon reaching the negative plate, the kinetic energy of the
ball is completely converted into thermodynamic internal energy of the negative plate. The positive
charge on the ball neutralizes some of the negative charge on the negative plate. The ball also then
becomes negatively charged by charge sharing and subsequently is repelled by the negative plate and
attracted back to the positive plate.

+Q
Q
The process continues with the electric pendulum swinging back and forth between the two plates
until essentially all of the charge on the capacitor is neutralized and the capacitor is discharged. We
imagine positive charge transferred one way, negative charge the other way until the two plates are
discharged. We observe that the force between the plates decreases with each swing of the
pendulum, confirming our account of the neutralization or discharge of the two plates. Once
discharged, the field between them is zero, they do not exert electric force on each other.
Q.13
Q.14
Consider the moment when the ball leaves the positive plate taking away a charge of 0.01C, leaving
