The upper plate has positive surface charge density + σ and the lower plate has negative surface charge density 2 σ . The separation between the plates is 2 d . Also, at a distance d above the upper plate is an infinite wire carrying a current I in the xdirection as shown. a) Consider the point P which is located halfway between the plates. What is the electric field at point P ? Write down your answer as a vector using the coordinate system shown: x points right, y points back (into page) and z points up. Be sure to explain how you determined your answer. b) What is the magnetic field at point P ? Write down your answer as a vector using the coordinate system shown. Be sure to explain your work....
