Palmer Q August 8, 2013 33   We have an infinite plane (z=0) which is charged with charge density σ [C/m2] > 0. What is the electric field throughout space?   What does the electric field look like?   Where is the symmetry?   We want to use Gauss’s Law to find the electric field.   What sort of shape can we use to simplify the electric flux?

What is the electric field throughout space?   What does the electric field look like?   Recall ring of charge   Same symmetry   Imagine plane as series of rings   Electric field only perpendicular to plane Physics 2B - Summer Session 2 - C. Palmer August 8, 2013 35   We have an infinite plane (z=0) which is charged with charge density σ [C/m2] > 0. What is the electric field throughout space?   We know the electric field at distance, d, from the surface is:   same in a parallel plane   perp to the charged plane Physics 2B - Summer Session 2 - C. Palmer August 8, 2013 36   We have an infinite plane (z=0) which is charged with charge density σ [C/m2] > 0. What is the electric field throughout space?   The Gaussian Surface we use should have a normal which is EITHER:   Parallel to the field   Perpendicular to the field Physics 2B - Summer Session 2 - C. Palmer August 8, 2013 37   We have an infinite plane (z=0) which is charged with charge density σ [C/m2] > 0.
