 Homework Statement:

Think of a symmetry now which will tell you that the magnitude of the electric
field is a constant, independent of the xcoordinate for a infinite uniformly charged plane sheet?
 Relevant Equations:
 Electric Field of uniformly charged infinite planar sheet = (surface charge density)/ (2× permittivity of free space)
Will translation parallel to x axis work ?
Else please suggest the symmetry?
And does symmetry here refer to the symmetry of the sheet which causes the symmetry of the field or something else?
Please be kind to help.
