What is the dielectric constant of plastic?
- Shankar (age 18)
There are a number of different kinds of "plastics" and each one has a different dielectric constant. They can range from 1.5 to 3.5 so you have to specify what kind. There are plenty of websites that contain detailed tables of these numbers. I advise you to search them with your particular kind of plastic in the search title.
