For parallel electrodes, is the average electric field in the fringe region smaller or larger than in the central region?
E = ΔV/ΔX
The Attempt at a Solution
I know that the electric field strength is proportional to the density of the equipotential lines. Looking at various pictures of equipotential lines in parallel plates it looks as though the density is greater in the central region. However, the lines are curved in the fringe region which may affect the density in a way I'm not yet sure of.
