Unformatted text preview: as the insulator 2 : :). ( ε σ ε σ c E σ = = near one face. Unlike a conductor, the insulator is the charge density in some sense. Thus one shouldn’t think of the charge as “spreading over each face” for an insulator. Far away, they both look like points with the same charge....
