Hi guys, New here! So bear with me. I know this queston has been answered partially before. I have a little confusion however. Question: two large neutral conducting sheets are connected by a wire and at a distance D from each other. A charge +q is placed a distance b from one of the plates. find the proportion of charge induced on each plate. (hint: model point charge as charge sheet) Answer:' E=V0-V1/b , E=V2-V0/D-b where V0,V1,V2=voltage at charge sheet, plate one, and plate two respectively and E1=field at plate 1, E2 field at plate 2. V1=V2 therefore: bE1= -(D-b)E2 ' The rest of the question from here uses Gauss and is straight forward. However how is V1=V2 ? how is potential across the plates to be understood? surely since V=ED the potential will be different at both plates. many thanks.
