## Homework Statement

The plane z = 0 is charged to a density [tex]\sigma = \sigma_0 sin(\alpha x) sin(\beta y)[/tex]

Find the potential.

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

Well I first thing I would normally do is use Gauss's Law to find E

[tex]E = \frac{\sigma}{2e0}[/tex] for an infinite plane, however in this case I don't appear to be able to just plug it in like that.

My next thought would be to find the total charge Q, but how does one do that when the plane is infinite?
