## Homework Statement

find the field produced by a uniformly charged sheet carrying 87 pC/m

^{2}

## Homework Equations

[itex]\oint \vec{E}.d\vec{A}[/itex] = q

_{enclosed}/[itex]\epsilon[/itex]

## The Attempt at a Solution

[itex]\Phi[/itex]= [itex]\sigma[/itex]A/[itex]\epsilon[/itex]

[itex]\Phi[/itex]=[itex]\oint E.dA[/itex] = ## E(2A) ##

2EA= [itex]\sigma[/itex]A/[itex]\epsilon[/itex]

E = [itex]\sigma[/itex]/(2[itex]\epsilon[/itex]) = 4.92 N/C where I use 8.85*10

^{-12}for [itex]\epsilon[/itex] (this has been the value used through the book)

However the book says the answer is 49 kN/C

could someone point out my error? Thanks.
