Homework Statement
Two infinite sheets with surface charge density σ1 and σ2, respectively, are oriented perpendicular to the xaxis. An infinite, conducting slab of thickness a is placed between the charged sheets as shown in the figure. The conducting plate has a net charge per unit area of σC.
σ1=8.85[tex]\mu[/tex]C/m^2
σ2=1.5[tex]\mu[/tex]C/m^2
σC=3[tex]\mu[/tex]C/m^2
a=2cm
Homework Equations
E=[tex]\sigma[/tex]/2[tex]\epsilon[/tex]0
The Attempt at a Solution
I figured since the magnitude of the electric field is not determined by displacement, I could just use the above equation. The only problem it that the conducting slab has different surface charge density on each side and I'm not sure how to start this. I have an exam tomorrow so any help is greatly appreciated!
I also attached a picture of the problem.
