🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Hanna's class at PSU.

Solution: 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).

Problem

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/mand 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).
