As we know air filled capacitor is said to be no dielectric medium. Hence air filled capacitor has dielectric constant of ~1(at 1atm of air) While for oil, this constant becomes near to ~42.5. Do you know why we use dielectric medium? I assume you know it. It used to increase the capacitance and then of course charge too. Then what about potential?? Estimate it to me.

capacitance will be incresed as \[\epsilon \times a\] is directle proportional to \[\epsilon\] and ϵ is more in oil.

What happens to the charge and potential depends on whether or not the battery used to charge the capacitor is disconnected before it is immersed in oil.
