The electric field between two square metal plates is 180 N/C. The plates are 1.0 m on a side and are separated by 3.0 cm, as in the figure. What is the charge on each plate? Neglect edge effects.
i don't know how to make any fancy sybols sorry
charge density = charge / (area x Eo)
electric field = charge density / 2
The Attempt at a Solution
180 = charge density/(2 x 8.85e-12)
charge density = 3.186e-9
3.186e-9 = Q / 1
Q = 3.186e-9
I know that the distance between the two sheets has to be taken into consideration, but I'm not sure where.
