2// Analysis Leyden Jar

I’m trying to study for my Physics course and I need some help to understand this question.

NOTE: do the same question but the different answers ( different words )

Answer the following on via complete, grammatical sentences:

1.Why is the outer conductive layer helpful when charging the jar? It isn’t even in contact with the lid and water!

2.The simplest general equation for the capacitance(effectiveness holding a charge) of a capacitor isC=εA/z. The three variables are: ε, the permittivity or polarizability of the insulating layer (in this case the glass or plastic); A, the total area of either conductive layer in contact with the insulator; and z, the thickness of the insulating layer: What are the three ways to improve a Leyden Jar, in theory, based on this equation?
