Electrostatics doubt

Consider two large and thin conducting plates, separated by a small distance. A charge Q is placed on one of the plates. The two plates are connected by a conducting wire. Find the final charge distribution.

Yep its an easy one . its a direct consequence of Gauss's law and laws of conductors under electrostatic condition . They should be equipotential as connected by a wire , Total charge will remain conserved since there is no external source of charge and Gauss's law will do it.

I guess I got it : Q/2 on both outer surfaces, 0 on both inner surfaces. Karthik Venkata · 5 months, 3 weeks ago
