```Capacitors come in all shapes and sizes….
Similar principle can be used for “touch screens” of
tablets, smart phones, etc.
Parallel plate capacitor
Note: it is ASSUMED that charge is equal and opposite on the two plates
Electric field is APPROXIMATELY perpendicular to the plates everywhere
between the plates.
Why are there “fringing” fields (ie. not straight) near the edges of the
capactior?
