# How to Calculate and Solve for Polarization of Dielectric Medium | Electrical Properties

The image of polarization of dielectric medium is shown below. To calculate polarization of dielectric medium, three essential parameters are needed and these parameters are Permittivity of Vacuum (Îµo), Dielectric Constant (Îµr) and Electric Field Intensity (E).

### The formula for calculating polarization of dielectric medium:

P = Îµo(ÎµrÂ – 1)E

Where:

P = Polarization of a Dielectric Medium
ÎµoÂ = Permittivity of Vacuum
ÎµrÂ = Dielectric Constant
E = Electric Field Intensity

Let’s solve an example;
Find the polarization of dielectric medium when the permittivity of vacuum is 12, the dielectric constant is 6 and the electric field intensity is 4.

This implies that;

Îµo = Permittivity of Vacuum = 12
Îµr = Dielectric Constant = 6
E = Electric Field Intensity = 4

P = Îµo(ÎµrÂ – 1)E
That is, P = (12)(6 – 1)(4)
P = (12)(5)(4)
P = 240

Therefore, theÂ polarization of dielectric mediumÂ isÂ 240 C/mÂ².
