A Uniformly Charged Slab. A slab of insulating material has thickness 2d and is oriented so that its faces are parallel to the yz-plane and given by the planes x=d and x= - d. The y- and z-dimensions of the slab are very large compared to d and may be treated as essentially infinite. The slab has a uniform positive charge density rho.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Using Gauss's law, find the magnitude of the electric field due to the slab at the points x>=d.
