    Solution: As the charge on the infinite plane is +ve, the surface of the infinite conductor (plate) nearest to the plane charge will have -ve charge induced on it (charging by induction) with a density η C/m2 and the far surface will have +ve charge induced on it with the same charge density (see fig. below).
    (please see the attached file)

    Parallel electrostatic lines originate on the positively charged infinite plane charge and proceed away from it on both sides. On the side of the infinite plate, they terminate on its negatively charged surface. On the other side they extend to infinity.
    Parallel lines originate ...
