This is a very confusing post.

The expression for the Coulomb's law that you wrote is for a point or spherical charge distribution. Yet, you are talking about "plates" here.

For an infinite planar charge distribution, use Gauss's law and figure out the expression for the E-field. It is NOT the same as what you have written.
