I'm looking for a equation (or equations) needed to calculate the electric field between to plates with the same charge. For example, two plates with positive charge.

Any help is appreciated.

Being able to draw the field of both plates? I don't think there are equations, just guidelines for understanding. All lines begin perpendicular and can not intersect.

So, like you said, we don't have any field. now, imagine a positively charged particle passes through two positively charged plates. How can I write the energy balance for the motion of particle?

Thanks.

Well, you don't need the plates there. Just look at formulas for particles moving perpendicular to an electric field.

Can you give me a hint as to what you're doing? I understand privacy but I think this could be much easier.

Thanks Samon4.

This is the problem ( V is velocity, "a" is acceleration)

If there's nothing else in the universe, there's no field between two plates with the same charge.

Can you (1) figure out the field due to a single plate, and (2) use the principle of superposition when there are two plates?
