Sorry if this has been answered already, i searched for a while. I know how to solve the problem of the potential of a point charge near a grounded infinite conducting plane, and a line charge near an infinite conducting plane. If the plane isn't necessarily grounded, say its at some potential V_0, the how would you solve the problem Then. I was tempted to just say that its a constant term added to the original problem, since that wouldn't affect the electric field, or the surface charge on the plane, because those are derivatives of the potential and a constant term won't matter, but I am not sure if that is a valid argument, or if its correct. Thanks in advance
