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

Two solid conductors are attached together orthogonally and there's an infinite plane with charge density σ at π/4 Rad with the conductors. Calculate the field dist. In the region with the plane

[PLAIN]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/11897904/image_2.png [Broken]

2. Relevant equations

E(infinite plane)= σ/(2ε_{0})

3. The attempt at a solution

Using the method of induced image charges we can say that 2 planes with -σ are induced and one plane of σ is induced. Does this mean that the E field is 0?!
