- Homework Statement
- An infinite sheet of charge is located in the y-z plane at x = 0 and has uniform charge density σ1 = 0.31 μC/m2. Another infinite sheet of charge with uniform charge density σ2 = -0.32 μC/m2 is located at x = c = 22 cm. An uncharged infinite conducting slab is placed halfway in between these sheets ( i.e., between x = 9 cm and x = 13 cm).

What is σa, the charge density on the surface of the conducting slab at x = 9 cm?

- Relevant Equations
- E infinite slab = σ/2Eo

Here's my attempt at a solution, but when I plug it in, it gives me a power ten error. I don't really understand what I'm doing wrong here. I think all my variables are in the correct units and it asks for my answer to be in μC/m2. Any help is much appreciated.
