Two 10 cm x 10cm square plates that are charged with ±12 nC and are 6 mm apart. What is the magnitude of the electric field between the two plates?

2. Relevant equations

E={sigma}{epsilon_0} .

3. The attempt at a solution

I know I have to use this equation but I'm not sure how to find the charge density. Also would it be E=sigma/2E_0 , since it's 2 plates or do I just plug the numbers into the formula?
