Reduction of q

in accordance with our sign convention for PVT systems
)

With
V=

When no material is present:
still work is done by changing the field energy in the capacitor

Work done by the material exclusively:
parameterized e.g., with time
(slow changes!)
With
Polarization=total dipole moment per volume

where V=const. is assumed so that PdV has not to be considered
)

where work is done mechanically via volume change against P
)

Again, when no material is present:
still work is done on the source by changing the field energy
