Dielectric: Displacement Vector

Q- Two parallel conducting plates are separated by the distance d, and the potential difference between the plates is maintained at the value V. A slab of dielectric with constant K and a uniform thickness t < d is inserted between the plates and parallel to them. Find the electric field vector E an…
