What is a dielectric constant?
A dielectric is an insulating material that does not conduct electricity and is transparent to an electromagnetic field. Dielectric materials are used to separate conducting surfaces such as the plates inside a capacitor, wires inside transformers, electric cable conductors, and elsewhere in the electric industry where electrical separation of charged elements is necessary. The dielectric constant is a ratio of the capacitance of a capacitor in which a particular insulating material is the dielectric, to the capacitance of the capacitor in which a vacuum is the dielectric.
A dielectric constant is the permittivity of the air and is related as the dielectric medium
dielectric constant for vacuum is 1.
dielectric constant for sodium Hypochlorite
The answer will depend on the metal.
The Dielectric Constant of a medium does not have a unit because it is a ratio.
The contribution of the positive ions in the lattice to the dielectric constant (e.g. Cadmium Selenide).
If the temperature increases, the conductivity will increase too which means the dielectric constant is reduced
'Dielectric constant' is an archaic term for relative permittivity. They are one and the same.
No, these are two unrelated properties of a material.
Between the two plates of a capacitor lies a medium with a specific dielectric constant. Placing a fish between these plates changes to dielectric constant. If the fish is fresh it will be strong and tight, thus possessing a higher dielectric constant. If the fish is older, it's dielectric constant, or body, will be weaker due to decay.
E = Eo/k k is dielectric constant
The Dipole moment and Dielectric constant describe opposite electrical charges. Dipole charges are very positive while Dielectric charges are very negative.
It's a temperature dependent variable. Most data sheets from chemical suppliers state the dielectric constant at 25C (77F) as 20.7. As an aside, the term dielectric constant should only apply to values measured at zero frequency as dielectric permittivity changes according to theoscillationof the applied electric field
Materials with a high dielectric constants are good insulators.
It can be taken as infinity
dielectric constant is a property of a material, this question is asking the property of a two mixed together, in an undeclared ratio. But yes dielectric constants can be measured. The problem you will have is keeping a uniform mix.
Usually, dielectric materials have permanent dipoles. As temperature increases, the molecules in the dielectric have more thermal energy and therefore, the amplitude of random motion is greater. This means that the molecules are less closely aligned with each other (even in the presence of an electric field). Hence, the dielectric constant reduces.
Water, due to its polar nature, has a large dielectric constant. Therefore, water molecule has a very large electric dipole moment and is forced to rotate to respond to an alternate external electric field. Hence water as a liquid has a very large dielectric constant i.e. 80. Mica on the other hand is less polar as water and hence has low dielectric constant.
Strontium Titanate has a dielectric constant of 233. TDK in Japan makes Ultra-high Voltage Ceramic Capacitors using this as the dielectric material. Compared to distilled water at 76.7 - 78.2 (lowers as temperature rises). Types of glass can vary between 4 and 10.
From : http://members.gcronline.com/cbrauda/0007.htm value of polystyrene dielectric constant is 2.6 other sources indicate it has a minimum value of 2.4 to a maximum of 3.0
What will happen to the electrostatic force between the two charges placed in air when an dielectric sheet is placed between them?
The force will be decreased by a factor of K, the dielectric constant of that dielectric sheet.
Correct: it is a dimensionless number.
Formamide is the most polar solvent. It has a dipole moment of 3.73 and a dielectric constant of 109. As a comparison, water has a dipole moment of 1.85 and a dielectric constant of 80. The higher the dipole moment value and the dielectric constant, the more polar the solvent. At the opposite, the less polar solvents are hexane, benzene and carbontetrachloride.
What happens to a capacitance if the volume is filled with material having a dielectric constant of 5?
Compared to a vacuum (dieletric constant = 1), or air (dielectric constant is close to 1), the capacitance will be five times as great in this case (other things being equal).

It is generally between 2.0 to 2.2
A dielectric constant is a ratio in science. This ratio is between the substance's permittivity and that of free space.
There is no more the dielectric constant for insulators than the colour for shirts. Every shirt has a colour, and every insulator has a dielectric constant. Find out what material your insulator is, then look in Kaye & Labey or any good handbook for radio and electronics engineers.
YES IT IS. Any quantity which is ratio of two physical quantities having same unit is dimensionless. Dielectric constant is ratio of Permittivty of medium to the permittivity of free space. As Permittivity of medium and permittivity of free space both have same units(F/m ie Farad/meter) dielectric constant becomes dimensionless quantity
Water has a very high dielectric constant so when an ionic salt is placed in water it ionizes and water molecules react with ions of solute and make a solution
The dielectric constant of water varies with temperature and is approximated by this polynomial equation: E = 87.740 - 0.40008*t + 9.398*(10^-4)*t^2 - 1.410*(10^-6)*t^3
Frequency of alternating field applied & temperature
It ranges between 2.2 and 2.8.
It has a very high dielectric constant
It varies, between species, from 1.4 to 2.9
The speed is the reciprocal of the dielectric constant. The dielectric constant is a property of the material and is the square root of the relative permittivity. That is around 2¼ for many common dielectrics like polythene.
Dielectric constant or relative permittivity of a medium is defined as the ratio of force between two charges separated by a certain distance in air (or vacuum) to the force between the same charges separated by the same distance in the medium. It is denoted by K.
The dielectric constant is the ratio of the permittivity of a substance to the permittivity of free space. It is an expression of the extent to which a material concentrates electric flux, and is the electrical equivalent of relative magnetic permeability. As the dielectric constant increases, the electric flux density increases, if all other factors remain unchanged. This enables objects of a given size, such as sets of metal plates, to hold their electric charge… Read More
area of the plates. distance between the plates. the dielectric constant
If the distance between the parallel plate capacitor is reduced to half and a dielectric of dielectric constant k is introduced then how does electric field varies?
From the formula, E = V/d, where V is the voltage and d is the distance, it can be seen that the electric field and the distance are inversely related. Thus, as the distance between the parallel plate capacitors is reduced to half, the electric field is increased twice. Moreover, is a dielectric constant k is introduced, the capacitance will increase. This direct relationship can be seen in the formula, C = [k(Єo)A]/d, where k… Read More
The material of the isolator between the plates of a capacitor affects the capacity of it. The dielectric constant of this material contributes to both the capacitance and the quality of a capacitor.

Benzene is a non polar solvent with low dielectric constant, whereas water is a polar solvent with high dielectric constant. So water can reduce the interaction between benzoic acid molecules there by preventing them from dimerizing, which cannot be done by benzene
Yes, these fall in a class called metamaterials.
DK measurement is the measurement of the relative dielectric constant of liquids and solid material. It is a measure of permeability.
What is the capacitance of a parallel plate capacitor with a dielectric of oil-soaked paper The dielectric constant is 3.8 the distance between the plates is 0.00625 inches and the plate area is 0.25?
The relative permittivity of a material is its dielectric permittivity expressed as a ratio relative to the permittivity of vacuum. Permittivity is a material property that expresses the force between two point charges in the material. Relative permittivity is the factor by which the electric field between the charges is decreased or increased relative to vacuum. Likewise, relative permittivity is the ratio of the capacitance of a capacitor using that material as a dielectric, compared… Read More
