(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

I have to show for a conducting sheet bent along one axis into the shape of a wedge, with a certain angle, that the magnitude of the electric field in the bend is proportional to [tex]r^{(\pi/\theta) - 1}[/tex], where theta is the opening angle.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm not sure how to treat this problem, is this just separation of variables for Laplace's equation in three dimensions?
