  1. Feb 17, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Please stop reading this unless you have Griffiths E and M book.
    Are we supposed to use equation 2.49 to do this? Isn't that only true for conductors? If not, how do you do the problem without using equation 2.49?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
