# Two infinite grounded parallel conducting planes are separated by a distance d. A point charge q is placed between the planes. Use Green's reciprocation theorem to prove that the total induced charge on one of the planes is equal to -q times the fractional perpendicular distance of the point charge from the other plane. (Hint: As your comparison electrostatic problem with the same surfaces choose one |whose charge densities and potential are known and simple.)
