(a) The capacitance of a parallel-plate capacitor is given by , where is the area of each plate and is the plate separation. Since the plates are circular, the plate area is , where R is the radius of a plate. Thus,

(b) The charge on the positive plate is given by   = , where V is the potential difference across the plates. Thus,
