# Electric Potential/Separation of Variables

This content was STOLEN from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the solution, here!

A rectangular pipe, running parallel to the z -axis (from &#8722;&#8734; to &#8734;), has three grounded metal sides, at y = 0, y = a, and x = 0. The fourth side,
at x = b, is maintained at a potential V0 (a constant).

(a) What is the potential within the pipe?

(b) Use a plotting program like Maple to plot the solution to zeroth order, &#64257;rst order, &#64257;fth order, and 100th order.

Use separation of variables of course.....my soln took about 4 pages but I cannot get the graph yet
