    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I've two parallel plate as in attachment. The electrode area is A, when voltage are supply to the electrode, electrostatic force will be generated.

    2. Relevant equations

    Here, I would like to find the solution or equation of the generated force in x or y direction. Right now I've calculated the force in z direction.

    3. The attempt at a solution

    The force in z direction can be derived as F=(epsilon(A)V^2)/(2d^2).
    Can anyone help me to find force in x or y direction?
