Hey guys I was wondering if anyone could help me with this problem(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

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 p(rho). Using Gauss's law, find the electric field between -d<x<d

This is what I did but the system states I am wrong.

pV=Qenclosed

EA=Qenclosed/epsilon

E(r^2)=(rho*r^2*2d)/epsilon

E=rho*2d/epsilon

Thanks anyone :)
