I have attached the problem with a diagram.
flux = EA = Qencl/εo
The Attempt at a Solution
I am confused about how I can find the charge densities on each surface. What I think is that the 5C will spread to both surfaces of plate one so σ1=σ2=5C and σ3=σ4=-6C. However I realize there may be induction and also I am not sure if we can assume the plates are enclosed surfaces... Although they do go to infinity. To be honest, I really have no clue how to approach this question.
Is the electric field at C zero? Since these are conducting I would think that it would act like a faraday cage and shield out all the electric fields.
