## Homework Statement

I have browsed similar threads and have only found more confusion. My question is if I have two parallel plates with an area A = 1m^2 and they are separated by a distance d = .03m. Each has a charge of Q and -Q respectively where Q = 1nC. I want to find the electric field between the plates.[/B]

## Homework Equations

The equation I used was from my textbook: δ/2ε˳[/B]

## The Attempt at a Solution

So I said that E(+) = 1nC/2(8.85x10^-12) and that E(tot) = 2(E(+)) = 112.99 n/c. However, this calculation does not take into account the distance between the two plates which I feel it should. Where have I gone wrong here?[/B]
