V V Version 1 Page 8 13. Charge is distributed on the surface of two very large insulating slabs such that
σ1=σ3=σ4=σ and σ2=-σ. What is the electric field at point C?
To keep proper track of signs I follow this procedure:
1) draw E-field arrow for each sheet at point C
without considering the sign of the sheet (I treat
them all positive).
2) write an equation for E at point C. Arrows that
point left get a negative sign.
3) plug in the actual value of charge density for each
sheet (including the sign this time).
This way I count sign from charge only once. A) 0

The x components cancel. We need to
find the y component. Due to
symmetry we can find y component of
field from posit...
