Electric potential \(\varphi\) of a plate capacitor whose plates are at distance \(d\) from each other. One plate was placed at coordinate \(x=0\) and the other plate at coordinate \(x=d\). Between the capacitor plates the potential is linear. At the plates themselves and behind the plates the potential is constant.
