    What are you trying to do?

    A wedge shaped dielectric?

    Are you trying to calculate the equivalent ε ?

    If so what would be your approach?

    So your dielectric has 2 regions? Divided diagonally? One with Kεo, the other with just εo?

    Well ...

    1/Ceq = 1/Co + 1/ Ck

    Looks like you will need to set up an integral and evaluate based on the changing distance of each dielectric region.
