Shown below in the diagram are two conducting material connected to a battery source and vacuum OR air is in between them. There will be charges developed on their surfaces. I am interested in finding out the pattern of electric field lines.
Suggest the method to arrive at the equation for the field lines or some software which would plot the field if we could give the charge arragement.
Also, if the potential of the battery is V volts, how to calculate the function of charge developed, with the distance of separation as a variable, and taking the medium of separation as air/vacuum ??
REASON FOR THE DIAGRAM:I am studying about various arc welding processes; and this is important in understanding the process.
