    Three very large square planes of charge are arranged as shown (on edge). From left to right, the planes have charge densities per unit area of -0.50 uC/m^2, +0.10 uC/m^2, and -0.40 uC/m^2. Find the total electric field (direction and magnitude) at the points A, B, C, and D. Assume the plates are much larger than the distance AD.
