    herre i mean to move it away from the other by applying a force \[F_A\]

    work done = change in internal energy

    1) Energy in a capacitor \(U={1\over2}{Q^2\over C}\)

    F=qE

    2) what changes when you separate the plates? capacitance: \[C={\epsilon_0kA\over d}\]

    so, \[U={1\over2}{Q^2d\over\epsilon_0kA}\]

    W = final energy - initial energy

    remember that Q does not change in this case, but C and V do

    @Jonask you are increasing the separation between the plates, right?

    yes i was hoping for \[dW=Fdx\]

    i would like us to do it intergration way

    you do not necessarily have to use the integration way. total work done is independent of path followed; depends on the initial and final states only!
