Electrostatics Online Test

A capacitor is charged by using a battery which is then disconnected. A dielectric slab is then slipped between the plates, which results in ____.
reduction of charge on the plates and increase of potential difference across the plates
increase in the potential difference across the plate, reduction in stored energy, but no change in the charge on the plates
decrease in the potential difference across the plates, reduction in the stored energy, but no change in the charge on the plates
