1. A pair of metal plates, mounted 1.0 cm apart on insulators, is charged oppositely. A test charge of +2.0 uC placed at the midpoint, M, between the plates experiences a force of 6.0 x 10­4N [W].

a. What is the electric field intensity at M?

b. What is the electric field intensity at a point 2.0 mm from the negative plate?

c. What is the electric field intensity at a point 1.0 mm from the positive plate?

d. What are two possible ways in which you could double the strength of the electric field?
