Electric Potential of a Charged Plane Sheet Consider an infinite plane sheet perpendicular to the x -axis at x = 0 . The sheet is uniformly charged with charge per unit area σ . Electric field (magnitude): E = 2 πk | σ | = | σ | 2 ² 0 Direction: away from (toward) the sheet if σ > 0 ( σ < 0) . Electric field (
