5. The electric field produced by an infinite sheet of charge has magnitude E = σ /2 ε 0 , where is the surface charge density. The field is normal to the sheet and is uniform. Place the origin of a coordinate system at the sheet and take the x axis to be parallel to the field and positive in the direction of the field. Then the electric potential is VV E d xV E x s x s =− z 0 , where V s is the potential at the sheet. The equipotential surfaces are surfaces of constant
