## Homework Statement

I am pursuing conceptual help regarding electric field due to uniformly charged planes.

## Homework Equations

[tex]E=\frac{\sigma}{2\epsilon} [/tex]

## The Attempt at a Solution

I understand that a capictor has plates that are +/-Q. However, how would you calculate the elctric field between the plates if the plates are not equal in charge? Would the electric field between the plates still be uniform?

[tex]E=\frac{\sigma _1}{2\epsilon} + \frac{\sigma _2}{2\epsilon} [/tex]
