Textbook Problem

A very large nonconducting plate lying in the xy-plane carries a charge per unit area of σ. A second such plate located at z = 2.00 cm and oriented parallel to the xy-plane carries a charge per unit area of –2σ. Find the electric field (a) for z < 0, (b) 0 < z < 2.00 cm, and (c) z > 2.00 cm.

(a)

To determine

The electric field for z< 0 .

Explanation

Given info: The surface charge density is σ.

Formula to calculate the electric field for z< 0 is,

    E=σ2ε0+σε0

(b)

To determine

The electric field for 0 <z< 2.00 cm .

(c)

To determine

The electric field for z> 2.00 cm.
