I have an electrode that I'm trying to model. It's got v=0 at z=0, and v=V at z=H. I've been playing around with the poisson equation, and keep getting terrible solutions to PDEs involving Bessel functions. Anyone know if there's a better way to do this (since I can't seem to solve it with the boundary conditions anyhow...and it's not a hw problem, so there's no one to ask)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thanks!
