Explanation as to why this question is not a duplicate, plus more information corroborating Alfred Centauri's answer.

I see I'm in the minority on this one. I still retain my original viewpoint that the answer posed by Alfred Centauri below which points out my mistake and the inherent paradox in the question are not addressed in the other post mentioned, and so this post should not be closed as a duplicate. It looks, however, as if many other people disagree.

Wow, thanks. I found this confusing. It seemed much more natural to assume that the work done would be a result of the total electric field at the location of the moving plate. It seems that by Newton's third law, an object cannot exert a net force on itself (meaning that the moving plate cannot do work on itself).

@CarlWitthoft I'm not sure I understand what you're saying. I read the other post, and they do not mention energy. However, the above question concerns energy.

@CarlWitthoft That post does not address the concept of energy.

Thanks Dan, is a Schedule 13D required if the stockholder already owns more than 5% of the stock and then purchases or sells additional shares?
