Problem

Two parallel conducting plates separated by a distance d are connected to a battery of voltage  ε. What is correct if the plate separation is doubled while the battery remains connected?

1. The potential difference between the plates is doubled.

2. The potential difference between the plates is halved.

3. The capacitance is unchanged.

4. The electric charge on the plates is doubled.

5. The electric charge on the plates is halved.
