A 12.5 μF capacitor is connected to a power supply that
keeps a constant potential difference of 24.0 V across
the plates. A piece of material having a dielectric
constant of 3.75 is placed between the plates, filling
the space. How much energy is stored in the capacitor
before the material was inserted (in mJ)?
