What is the magnitude of electric field near the center of the sheet?

The surface charge density of an infinite sheet of charge is 9.00 X 10^-6 C/M^2. What is the magnitude of electric field near the center of the sheet?

Solution Preview

I'd use Gauss's law for this one.

Consider a cylindrical gauussian surface penetrating the sheet of charge. The flux through each end of the gaussian surface is EA, where A is the area of one end of ...
