What is the field near a square metal plate (with infinitesimal thickness)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The answer is E = [tex]\sigma[/tex] / [tex]\epsilon[/tex]

where [tex]\sigma[/tex] = Charge per unit area

[tex]\epsilon[/tex] = relative permeabily

Please help me to derive this result. using coulombs and then gauss' law
