The charge would automatically spread out evenly over both faces, giving it half the charge density on any

Unformatted text preview: as the insulator 2 : :). ( c E = = near one face. Unlike a conductor, the insulator is the charge density in some sense. Thus one shouldnt think of the charge as spreading over each face for an insulator. Far away, they both look like points with the same charge....
