Please help! Parallel plates!

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Two very large parallel plates are oppositely and uniformly charged. The field between the plates is 1.3×10^6 N/C.

    How dense is the charge on each plate ( in microC / m^2 )

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    You're going to have to give this some thought / effort, people won't just answer the question for you.

    What equations do you have that relate capacitance, charge, electric fields, etc etc?
