Let x,y,z be a system of axes.

In the x,y plane, there is an infinite plate of some width w assumed to be small for the sake of simplicity, made of some dielectric material.

A charge q is placed at (x,y,z) = (1, 0, 0). What is the electrical field for x < 0, and in particular along the x axis.

Same question if the plate is made of some conductive material.

Make any assumption, simplification or approximation you want about all the unspecified parameters like the dielectric constant etc., a partial answer being better than no answer at all. thx.
