# An infinite, nonconducting sheet has a surface charge density σ = +9.64 pC/m2. (a) How much work is done by the electric field due to the sheet if a particle of charge q0 = 1.60 × 10-19 C is moved from the sheet to a point P at distance d = 3.13 cm from the sheet? (b) If the electric potential V is defined to be zero on the sheet, what is V at P?
