# Re: 99 bottles of beer in the cap.....

```Okay, Mr. Boden---

To the best of your ability find the area of the glass dialectric, then
sacrafice a perfectly good longneck Corona-type SW cap canidate to a
hammer. Find the thickness of the glass.

Use this formula:
assuming all dimensions are in inches,
and a dialectric constant(Er) of....  hmm...  pyrex=~5.1, plate=~7.3,
borosilicate=4.84, Fused Quartz=3.78.....  and Corona bottles are
probably none of those.
n=number of plates, A=area of one plate, t=dialectric thickness
C=Er*0.225[({n-1}*A)/t]pF
