IB Physics: Activity: Charging capacitors

Consider a parallel plate capacitor charged by moving positive charges from one plate to the other as shown.As each charge is moved the PD between the plates increasesThe charging process can be represented by the V vs Q graph shown below.We can see that the work done when charge ΔQ is added is approximately the same as the area of dark shaded rectangle. This is actually a trapezium but if ΔQ is small the approximation...
