Force acting on the charge

  1. Mar 15, 2008 #1
    Suppose that a point charge q is located at some distance d from a grounded conducting plane. How do we find the force acting on the charge due to the presence of the conducting plane and what could be its direction?

    Have you studied the method of image charges? I would hope so.
