what is the difference between the electric field intensity of
1)infinite plane charged sheet whose formula is E=[itex]\sigma[/itex]/2[itex]\epsilon[/itex]o and 2)infinite conducting charged sheet whose formula is E = [itex]\sigma[/itex]/[itex]\epsilon[/itex]o

http://hyperphysics.phyastr.gsu.edu...gausur.html#c3 One is a sheet of charge where the E field is on top and bottom. The other is where the E field is only on one side. Zz.

How can we derive the formula for
'2)infinite conducting charged sheet whose formula is E = σ/ϵo' i am not cleared about the second point. what will be the pattern of charge distribution on the conductor and how it can be derived through direct integration?

Are you not familiar with Gauss's law?
