## Homework Statement

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.

## Homework Equations

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

## 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!
