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… Read More

In the electric field inside the dielectric (or insulating) medium separating the two plates
When the dielectric strength of the insulating material (e.g. air) separating the static charges is exceeded.
One field in which this is helpful is in the manufacture of insulating materials. Dielectric strength determines the strongest electric field an insulator can withstand before it fails. For example, if the insulation around a wire melts or breaks, the insulator's dielectric strength is compromised.
A capacitor consists of two plates (foils ...) separated by an insulating medium. The insulating medium may be air, oil, a plastic film, and so on, and is known as the dielectric. The charge on the capacitor is actually stored by slightly distorting the molecules in the dielectric. The quality of a dielectric is measured by a factor known as K, and a higher K means that the molecule can store a larger distortion. When… Read More
A 'dielectric' describes a material that supports an electric field and is generally used to describe an insulating material. Two properties exhibited by a dielectric are its permittivity and its dielectric strength. High values of permittivity (abillity to improve capacitance) are desirable for dielectrics used in capacitors, and high values of dielectric strength (ability to withstand voltages) are desirable for insulators but, unfortunately, the two quantities aren't relatated. So, selecting a dielectric is a matter… Read More
In SI, the unit of dielectric strength is volts per meter (V/m). In U.S. customary units, dielectric strength is often specified in volts per mil. In physics, dielectric strength 2 meanings: Of an insulating material, the maximum electric field that a pure material can withstand under ideal conditions without breaking down. For a specific configuration of dielectric material and electrodes, the minimum applied electric field that results in breakdown.
Myelin is a dielectric (electrically insulating) material that forms a layer, the myelin sheath, usually around only the axon of a neuron.

A fault between phase and ground. A "fault" occurs as the result of the dielectric strength of an insulating medium fails. For overhead power lines, the insulating medium is typically air. The phase wires are spaced so far away from each other, and so far away from ground. This spacing is based on the "dielectric strength" of air, or how well air acts as an insulator/resists the flow of electricity. If the distance between a… Read More
Capacitors consist of a insulating material, called a 'dielectric', sandwiched between two conductors, called 'plates'. Capacitors are devices that store energy (not charge!); this energy is stored in the electric field set up within the dielectric between the two plates when they are connected to an external potential difference.
All electrolytic capacitors are polarized capacitors whose anode electrode (+) are made of a special metal on which an insulating oxide layer originates by anodization (forming), which acts as the dielectric of the electrolytic capacitor.
Dielectric loss is basically loss caused due to heating of the dielectric but Dielectric breakdown means permanently destruction of the dielectric strength of the dielectric therby losing its property and hence behaving as a somewhat like conductor.
The limiting feature of a transformer is the thermal breakdown of the insulating varnish on the wire. Once this breaks down, some of the windings will short circuit, which will lead to rapid breakdown of the transformer. For small high voltage transformers, the windings are carefully laid down with insulating foils between adjacent windings so as to limit dielectric breakdown.
A dielectric constant is the permittivity of the air and is related as the dielectric medium
An Electric field stress depends on the mechanical strength of the materials and the stresses that are generated during their operation. During high voltage applications, the dielectric strength of insulating materials are developed when subjected to high voltages.
coaxial cable has a solid copper or copper-clad-steel centre conductor surrounded by a non-conductive dielectric insulating material. The dielectric is surrounded by foil shield/s and/or copper braid/s which form the outer conductor and also shield against electromagnetic interference (EMI). The outer conductor/shield is encased in a PVC jacket.
yes It does not flow through the insulating dielectric, it flows by charging one plate positive and the other negative. Excess charge carriers entering on one lead of the capacitor build up on one plate and electrostatically repel charge carriers from the other plate and out of the capacitor's other lead.
the dielectric strength of a material is defined as the min electric stree due to which the meterial get ruptured is called dielectric strngth of that material.
no A2: Not necessarily. Solid plastics or solid glass or ceramic have high dielectric strength but not good thermal insulation. Closed-cell foam has good thermal insulating properties but not as good a dielectric strength as solid--there are pockets of gas or air in it. The D.S. is not much better than using the same volume of gas, alone.
In physics, a dielectric is an insulating (or very poorly conducting) material. The material can be solid, liquid or gaseous. When a voltage difference is applied to top and bottom of a cylinder filled with a dielectric, no current will flow inside the cylinder because, unlike metals, a dielectric has no free-or loosely bound-electrons that can drift through the material. Instead, electric polarization occurs. The positive charges within the dielectric are displaced minutely in the… Read More
Capacitors are named after their dielectrics. So, an 'air capacitor' uses air as its dielectric, a 'mica capacitor' uses mica as its dielectric, and so on. There are lots of different dielectric used to separate the plates of a capacitor, each with different permittivities and dielectric strengths. As the perfect dielectric (i.e. one with both a very high permittivity and a very high dielectric strength) doesn't occur, the choice of dielectric is always a compromise… Read More
why need dielectric test for transformer
It is the tensile force experienced by cable insulation Answer I think you mean either 'dielectric strength' or 'dielectric strain', rather than 'dielectric stress'. Dielectric strength is a measure of the maximum electric field a dielectric can withstand before breakdown, expressed in volts per metre. Dielectric strain is a measure of the electric flux density of an electric field, expressed in coulombs per square metre.
dielectric constant for vacuum is 1.
Thermal loss in dielectric heating
The answer will depend on the metal.
dielectric constant for sodium Hypochlorite
A dielectric material is an electrical insulator that's able to be polarized by an electric current. A dielectric cell is, as such, a cell containing this material.
Is there any change in the current or voltage coming from the other end of the dielectric after the dielectric breakdown occurs?
Yes. Once dielectric breakdown occurs the circuit is now completed through a conductive breakdown channel in the dielectric. The current injected in one end of the dielectric is matched by the current coming out of the other end.
opposite of insulating material is conducting material
No, the atmosphere is the insulating blanket.
The Dielectric Constant of a medium does not have a unit because it is a ratio.
No, these are two unrelated properties of a material.
capacitors are classified on the basis of dielectric material used inside it. For example the electrolytic capacitor consist electrolyte as dielectric mica capacitor consist mica as dielectric between plates and ceramic capacitor consist ceramic as dielectric.
E = Eo/k k is dielectric constant
boundary conditions for perfect dielectric materials
This depends on the particular dielectric. Each has a different breakdown strength.
Electrolytic capacitors use aluminium as a dielectric.
The electric field is weakened when a dielectric is inserted.
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.
Dielectric footwear meets ASTM F1117-03 (2008). This footwear is tested to 20,000v while wet. Electrical Hazard (EH) footwear meets ASTM F2413-05 or CAN/CSA-Z195-M92 Section 4.3 and is tested on the soles ONLY. EH is usually used for Low Voltages and in dry conditions. Dielectric can be used for higher voltages and in wet conditions. Usually near possible downed powerlines. These are always "secondary protection since they are not retested like D120 rubber insulating gloves. Dielectric… Read More
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.
A dielectric is an insulator which, when exposed to an electric field, results in the distortion of the electron orbits surrounding its fixed nucleii, and causes the polarisation of those atoms. The direction of this polarisation is opposite to that of the electric field and, therefore, acts to reduce the magnitude of the field. In the case of a capacitor, dielectrics, therefore, act to change the capacitance of a capacitor which otherwise depends upon the… Read More
