1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A vacuum parallel plate capacitor is given. Its plates are of thickness h, width L (in the plane of the figure) and their distance is D. The plates of the capacitor are perpendicular to the plane of the figure, which is at the same time the symmetry plane of the capacitor (our problem is two-dimensional). The electrical field around the plates should be computed (especially outside of the capacitor). I need to implement this in SciLab. The thing I know is that i should make a matrix of all points and for each point calculate electrial field using Laplace Transform. I am totally green with physics in general. Any suggestion will be appreciated.
