EVALUATE:! The charge is not equally distributed over the surface of each conductor. There must be more charge on the lower half, by a factor of K, because the polarization of the dielectric means more free charge is needed on the lower half to produce the same electric field. = i,rb # = f,rb (1 ! 1 K ) # ' 24-26 Chapter 24 24.77.
