An air filled parallel plate capacitor is attached to a battery. With the battery connected, a slab of dielectric material with dielectric constant, $K > 1$, is inserted so that it fills the volume between the plates. Note that dielectric constant is also called relative permittivity; the terms are synonymous.

Which of the following properties associated with the capacitor change upon insertion of the dielectric?

Select ALL that apply.


The charge on the capacitor plates.


The value of the capacitance of the plates.


The voltage across the capacitor.


The electric field between the capacitor plates.


The energy stored in the capacitor.
