Homework Help: Coulomb force if dielectric is placed in between them

  1. Mar 27, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    two charges q1 and q2 are palced at a distance r. A slab of thickness t is placed between the two cahrges having dielectic constant k. Find coulomb force between the charges.

    2. Relevant equations
    Well F = q1q2 / 4∏ε°k - this would have been the force if the slab was completely between the charges but it isnt. It only occupies a thickness t

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I dont knwo what to do. Dielectric is in between which is causing problems
