Homework Help: physics

Posted by J on Monday, January 28, 2008 at 10:34pm.

A parallel plate capacitor having plates 6.0 cm apart is connected across the terminals of a 12.0 V battery. (a) Being as quantitative as you can, describe the location and shape of the equipotential surface that is at a potential of +6.0 V relative to the potential of the negative plate. Avoid the edges of the plates. (b) DO the same for the equipotential surface that is at +2.0 V relative to the negative plate (c) what is the potential gradient between the plates?

ok..wouldn't the equipotential surface just be perpendicular to the electric field? or am I totally wrong?
