In this paper, it has been explained how the equipotential surface is influenced by the shape of the symmetric polyhedral conductor and how it finally becomes spherical as it would be if the polyhedral conductor is replaced by a point charge placed at the centre of that conductor. As we move away from the polyhedral conductor the consecutive equipotential surfaces curve more at the sharp bends. A patter n is observed when the diagonal distance from the vertex of the conductor to the first occurrence of its spherical equipotential surface for all symmetric polyhedral conductors is mathematically calculated which is half of the length of its side.
