2 large plates are separated by a distance d and a space charge of uniform charge density p is placed between them and a potential difference V is applied across the plates. Find the electric field stength at a distance x fromt the positive plate
The answer is -V/d +p(x-2d)/2e ( e = epsiolon0)
The Attempt at a Solution
using gauss law:
EA = Qenc/e, Qenc = A*g + charge inside my box, which i can't seem to find, since i have no idea how all the charge will redistribute, I'm guessing some will go onto the plates, or maybe they will redistrubute so as to create an opposing field of equal magnitude to the external field...
