As a second example, consider the capacitance of a metal-dielectric-metal sandwich. Suppose the middle plane of the structure is the plane of y and z. If end effects are neglected, the fields are one-dimensional and the equations of equilibrium are given by (8.1). Also, assume that the conditions of isotropy (6.1) hold.
