The question states that there is an infinite plane slab of thickness 2d that has a uniform charge density rho. Find the electric field as a fucntion of y, where y=0 at the center.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

inside plane:

[tex] \int E da = 2EA = \frac{\rho A y}{\epsilon_o}[/tex]

outside plane:

[tex] \int E da = 2EA = \frac{\rho A d}{\epsilon_o}[/tex]

The 2d thickness runs along the y axis, and the plane is infinite along the x and y axis.

Is this the right setup?
