Hi, I'm having trouble applying Laplace's equation solution in cylindrical coordinates to the problem of the grounded conducting cylinder of radius a in a uniform external field. The cylinder axis is the z axis, and the external electric field is E0 in the x direction. I need to find the potential V(r) and the induced surface charge. Thanks.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
