Homework Statement


There's a charge, not at the center of a grounded cube. Find the potential in the cube.


Homework Equations





The Attempt at a Solution



I'm really just looking for a place to start. I should end up with some kind of series, but I dont know if I should be doing some Method of Images, or Greens Function, or Poisson Equation. The only information I can find is for Laplace's Eqn which doesnt apply here, so I'm kinda stuck.

Just trying to get a head start on some homework, so can someone just point me in the right direction?

Thanks,

The potential of the cube is zero. So try the method of images to set up a system of charges due to which the potential of the cube is zero.See if that works
