The 2D Electrostatic Poisson's equation given by the governing PDE and its boundary conditions:

can be written as (see the General formulation for Electrostatic Problems):

with (* n* is the number of nodes of the element):

## 2D formulation for Triangular Elements

After applying the numerical integration for triangular elements by using the natural coordinates, we obtain:
