Why is the dielectric strength of vacuum infinite?
The dielectric strength of vacuum is infinite because there is no molecule in the vacuum.
It is not infinite. At some extreme values electron-positron pairs will start forming rapidly what will result current flow. However from practical standpoint vacuum dielectric strength is limited by field emission from electrodes. Best results are about 40MV/m , what is far worse than some good dielectrics can provide.
dielectric constant for vacuum is 1.
For an insulating material dielectric strength and dielectric loss should be respectively
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.
This depends on the particular dielectric. Each has a different breakdown strength.
For an insulating material dielectric strength and dielectric loss should be respectively high or low?
For an insulating material dielectric strength and dielectric loss should be respectively high or low
high and high
No, these are two unrelated properties of a material.
Generally, increased moisture levels will lower breakdown strength, especially if the dielectric readily absorbs water. Increasing temperature generally decreases breakdown strength of solid dielectrics. The dielectric strength of some materials may increase with temperature within limited temperature ranges. However, dielectric strength eventually begins to decrease at higher temperatures.
dielectric strength is tested by transformer dielectric strength oil testing machine. at first, oil which is to be tested is pour near the two electrode. both the electrode should be dipped in oil . then adjust the distance between the electrode .now start the machine.when a sound came from machine then note down the dielectric strength of the oil.
ASTM D149 - 09 Standard Test Method for Dielectric Breakdown Voltage and Dielectric Strength of Solid Electrical Insulating Materials at Commercial Power Frequencies
INSULATION RESISTANCE: The insulation resistance is a measure of the capability of a material to withstand leakage of current under a Vdc potential gradient. DIELECTRIC STRENGTH: The dielectric strength is a measure of the ability of the material to withstand a large field strength without electrical breakdown, and is usually expressed in volts per mil (.001') or volts per cm of dielectric.
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.
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.
Dielectric Strength of Vacuum is more than that of Air. In HT voltage is more than LT. So VCB is used in HT & ACB in LT. Rakesh Gaikwad
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.
high and low
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.
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
Generally, dielectric breakdown strength decreases with increasing humidity. In air, exact relationships between dielectric strength and humidity are hard to derive, due to the numerous other variables compounding the relationships (e.g. electrode size and shape, air temperature and pressure).

According to a few charts I was able to find, the most realistic material with the highest dielectric strength happens to be Mica, with dielectric strength of 118.
The dielectric strength refers to the maximum working voltage that a material can withstand without breaking down. At breakdown the electric field frees bound electrons turning the material into a conductor.
Those with vacuum as the dielectric have.
Yes, but without air to ionize they will usually be invisible. Even a vacuum has a point of dielectric breakdown.
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
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
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
When you say BDV you might mean the dielectric strength of transformer oil. A new transformer oil should have at lest a dielectric strength of 39 KV. from a British standard.Transformer oils used are normally tested using ASTM D877-82 with the KV strength tester using 1" electrodes spaced 0.1" apart and the test voltage increased at 3,000 volts/min until it breaks down. The average Kv obtained after 8 trials is considered the Oil dielectric strength… Read More

What is the effect of inserting a dielectric other than air on vacuum between the plates of a capacitor?
Capacitance definitely increases

What is the effect of inserting a dielectric other than air vacuum between the plates of a capacitor?
It usually increases the value of the capacitance.
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.
A vacuum circuit breaker is a high-voltage circuit breaker whose contacts separate within a vacuum dielectric. The vacuum contributes to extinguishing the resulting arc because ionisation cannot take place while the arc is stretched between the separating contacts.
When the dielectric strength of the insulating material (e.g. air) separating the static charges is exceeded.
Joseph Wesley Cable has written: 'Induction and dielectric heating' 'Vacuum processes in metalworking'
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.
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).
A basic capacitor is made up of two conductors separated by an insulator, or dielectric. The dielectric can be made of paper, plastic, mica, ceramic, glass, a vacuum or nearly any other nonconductive material. Some capacitors are called electrolytics, meaning that their dielectric is made up of a thin layer of oxide formed on a aluminum or tantalum foil conductor.
Yes, this would be perfect symmetry.
A conductor is a material which allows elctronic flow through it with some finite (though usually very small) resistance as opposed to a dielectric, the other name for an insulator, that provides ideally infinite resistance to current flow at all temperatures.
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
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.
"Air" and "Vacuum" describe how the breaker extinguishes the arcing current. An Air breaker opens far enough that the dielectric strenght of air is enough to extinguish the arc. A vacuum breaker's contacts are in a vacuum. Oil breakers use oil. SF6 breakers use SF6 gas to extinguish the arc.
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.
