Potential Difference Between Points on Dielectric Triangle

  1. Apr 18, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A dielectric equilateral triangle of dielectric constant 30 is inserted into uniform horizontal electric field of 100,000 N/C. What is the potential difference between two points 3 cm apart on one of the sides?

    2. Relevant equations
    ΔV =∫E⋅dl E' =E/κ

    3. The attempt at a solution
    The electric field in the triangle is E/κ but I'm not sure along what path to integrate to find the potential difference.
