Homework Help: Given electric field, find surface or charge density

  1. Feb 24, 2013 #1
    We know that ∇.D = ρV

    My question is, if D is due to a linear or a surface charge distribution, can we apply this equation and get a surface or linear charge density?

    Thank you very much

    Yes, but I think, you have to sort of integrate within the boundary conditions. There is lot of information regarding this on google, if you do a search.
