Consider the three infinite sheets of charge shown in the figure. The first sheet has chage density σ1 = +10μC/m2 and lies on the yz-plane. The second sheet has charge density of σ2 = +10μC/m2 and is parallel to the yz-plane at x = 0.10 m. The third sheet has charge density of σ3 = +10μC/m2 and is parallel to the yz-plane at x = 0.20 m. Determine the electric field at the point P (0.05 m, 0).

The two infinite, conducting plates of thickness = h and separation = d are oppositely charged. The charge per unit area on the top plate is σ , and the charge on the bottom plate is σ , where σ is a positive number. What is the magnitude of the electric field in each region depicted in the picture?

Four parallel infinite sheets of charge spaced by 4 cm between adjacent sheets are shown edgewise in the figure. Their charge densities are as indicated with σ = 2.0 μC/m2. What is the magnitude of the electric field at point P midway between two sheets as shown?
(1) 4.5 × 105 N/C
(2) 2.3 × 105 N/C
(3) 1.13 × 105 N/C
(4) 9.0 × 105 N/C
(5) 0

Two 4.8 cm diameter metal disks are separated by a 0.19 mm thick piece of paper. (Dielectric constant for paper is called kpaper = 3.7, its dielectric strength is 16x106 V/m .)a) What is the capacitance?b) What is the maximum potential difference between the disks?

Dry air will break down if the electric field exceeds about 3.0 × 106 V/m. What amount of charge can be placed on a capacitor if the area of each plate is 3.1 cm2?

The electric field strength is 2.30×104 N/C inside a parallel-plate capacitor with a 0.600 mm spacing. An electron is released from rest at the negative plate.What is the electron's speed when it reaches the positive plate?
