Voltage inbetween two angled plates?

    Potential between two angled plates?

    I have a problem involving two angled plates

    Diagram

    L=10cm
    d=1mm
    [itex]\phi[/itex]= 1°

    Where I'm supposed to find the potential at any point between the plates. I recognize that I'm supposed to use the Laplace equation in cylindrical coordinates and that V is independent of z, but I end up with an equation that looks like:

    0=1/ρ * ∂/∂ρ * (ρ * ∂V/∂ρ) + 1/ρ^2 * ∂^2v/∂ [itex]\Phi[/itex] ^2 (I think)

    and I have no idea what I'm supposed to do with it. If someone could clarify that it would be nice.

    Thanks in advance.
