A two-dimensional electrostatic field is produced by a system of charged wires, plates, and cylindrical conductors that are perpendicular to the z-plane. The wires, plates, and cylinders are assumed to be so long that the effects at the ends can be neglected as mentioned in Section 10.4. This sets up an electric field E(x,y); that can be interpreted as the force acting on a unit positive charge placed at the point `(x,y)`;. In the study of electrostatics the vector field E(x,y) is shown to be conservative and is derivable from a function phi(x,y);, called the electrostatic potential, as expressed by the equation
