A parallel-plate capacitor of area $$A$$, plate separation $$d$$ and capacitance $$C$$ is filled with four dielectric materials having dielectric constants $$k_1, k_2,k_3$$ and $$k_4$$ as shown in the figure below. If a single dielectric material is to be used to have the same capacitance $$C$$ in this capacitor, then its dielectric constant $$k$$ is given by:

 1 $${k}={k}_1+{k}_2+{k}_3+3 {k}_4$$ 2 $${k}=\frac{2}{3}\left({k}_1+{k}_2+{k}_3\right)+2 {k}_4$$ 3 $${k}=\frac{2}{3} {k}_4\left(\frac{{k}_1}{{k}_1+{K}_4}+\frac{{k}_2}{{k}_2+{k}_4}+\frac{{k}_3}{{k}_3+{k}_4}\right)$$ 4 $$\frac{1}{{k}}=\frac{1}{{k}_1}+\frac{1}{{k}_2}+\frac{1}{{k}_3}+\frac{3}{2 {k}_4}$$
