When a third plate is inserted between the two plates of a parallel plate capacitor, charges separate in the third plate to cancel the field within itself, and consequently the electric field gets stronger in the area covered by the third plate.


This example is from the Electrons at Rest chapter of Ultimate Electronics Book. It shows a parallel plate capacitor with a third conductive plate being inserted in between the two capacitor plates. The result is charge separation in the 3rd plate and stronger field lines in the area of the third plate.
