Gauss' Law

Problem Solution

24.58 Two infinite, nonconduciting sheets of charge are parallel to each other as sketched here. The sheet on the left has a uniform surface charge density sigma and the one on the right has a uniform charge density negative sigma, - . Calculate the value of the electric field at points (a) to the left of, (b) in between, and (c) to the right of the two sheets. ... Repeat the calculation for the case when both sheets have positive uniform charge densities sigma .
