[NOTES/EM04009] The Method of ImagesNode id: 5979page The method of images makes use of The uniqueness of solutions to boundary value problem makes it possible to relate solution of a given problem in a region \(R\)to another problem with same charge density and boundary conditions. The basic working of the method of images exploits this by for probles involving conductors. It relates the given problem to another problem without conductors but with a set of image charges chosen in a manner that meets the requirement of the uniqueness theorem. The solution to the second problem then provides the desired solution.

[NOTES/EM03014] Discussion of Electrostatic EnergyNode id: 5964pageThe two expressions for electrostatic energy in terms of the electric field for a systems of point charges and for a continuous charge distributions are discussed. The computation of electrostatic energy for point charges does not include the self energy. This expression can be positive or negative and is zero for a single point charge. On the other hand the expression for energy density for continuous charges is always be positive definite and becomes infinite when applied to a single point charge.
