The equation relating these two variables is This can easily be restated in integral form Electric Field and Electric Potential E = - δς δρ V = Εδρ Use this to solve for parallel charged plates V = Ε E is uniform Distance between the charges r is the same at all locations, and r = d V = Εδ V = κ θ ρ 2 Use this to solve for point charges E = κ 2 From Gauss’s Law, we know V = κθ 1 2 Constants do not require integration V = κΣ
