(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Two point charges +q and -q are placed respectively in positions (-a, 0, +a) and (-a, 0, -a) of a cartesian reference frame, with a being positive and known. The half space of positive x is fully occupied by a conductor. What are the positions and values of the mirror charges in this specific case?

The mirror charge for +q is: -q at (a, 0, +a)

The mirror charge for -q is: +q at (a, 0, -a)

DRAW A SKETCH

how do I do this considering that 'the half-space of positive x is fully occupied by a conductor'

3. The attempt at a solution

drawing a line at y=0, z=0 on the x-axis but only for positive x

but this is wrong
