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

Determine whether or not V = xy is the correct potential function for the geometry shown in the figure: http://img268.imageshack.us/img268/446/48401266.jpg [Broken] for the region 0 < x< 1 and 0 < y < 1. Why or why not? Assume that the region between the conducting plates has a relative permittivity of ε_{r}= 3.0.

2. Relevant equations

There are multiple equations for the potential function V. I do not know which one to use/how to use it.

3. The attempt at a solution

Don't really know to get started on this one. I would appreciate any help that you can provide. I just need to know how to get started. Thanks for the help!
