where SD refers to the standard deviation of the data
So in the case of the two parallel plates, SD= 3.06 . Therefore,

= 9.3765
Because this number was lower than the result obtained in the case of the two dipoles, I believe
this number is reasonable. One reason this number is lower is that the data in the parallel plates
