Sketch the electric field between the two conducting plates shown in Figure 18.49 , given the top plate is positive and an equal amount of negative charge is on the bottom plate. Be certain to indicate the distribution of charge on the plates.

Hence the field will be more on the end where charges are concentrated than on end wheredistance between two rods is more.

in this question, we are given the structure, which is non symmetric. So one plate, it's somewhat like this. I'll try to draw as accurate as I can on another plate is like this. We are given that both plates have equal amount of charge. Upward plate has a positive charge, and lower plate has negative judge. So first thing we must understand is that if there wasn't one plate available, let's say there was. This negative late wasn't here. Since its conductor, the charge will be equally distributed, or charge will be distributed in a way that potential near surface is constant everywhere. So now we need to draw the field lines in the absence off in the absence off one plate. So if there was only one plate and it was positively charged, So in this inner surface, it will be like this because all charges on yourself, it's our equal here on DDE, away from the surface, it will be bit like this. So this is the distribution off electric field lines when there is only one plate available. So in this case they're all pointing away from the surface because it's positively charged. Now these lines in this case will bend according to the necessity. So see that lines should be always perpendicular to the surface off the conductor. So let me make this particular here on. They should also be perpendicular to the conductor, which is second plate. So they will be somewhat like this. It's very tricky to draw near the Kolya on the corner especially. So see this lions should go like this on dhe all off them. Since this is positive and this is negative, they should go like this should originate on the positive and should point on the negative. These lines will be here as well, but no. The question also asks you if the charge distribution it's symmetric. That is to indicate the distribution of charge on the place since and in this site at this side which is left inside is closer. So positive charge and negative charge attract each other. They will be lions which are close and dense, so that means they will be more positive charge and more negative charge on the left side compared to underwrite inside. As you can see, I have drawn less lines on this side, so it should be repentant killer. So on this side, on the other hand, they're still pointing away from the conductor, also parallel perpendicular to the surface and parallel to each other. And same goes here. They're parallel to each other. I cannot draw that accurately. Also, they should, in this case, point in worse on dhe, as discussed before the lines. I like this from this diagram since I should drive more lines here because now there are more charges on the left hand side. And let's charge us on the right inside. So there will be less lines or density will be less so. See that they haven't changed much except in this region. So there is like there are lines everywhere, but the density changes according to the number of available charges. So we have more charge on the left side than the right side. Thank you.
