Two parallel conducting plates $${{params.L}} \textrm{ cm}$$ on a side are given equal and opposite charges of magnitude $${{params.q}}\times 10^{ {{params.p}} } \textrm{ C}$$.

The plates are $${{params.d}}\rm\ mm$$ apart.

## Part 1#

What is the magnitude of the electric field at the centre of the region between the plates?

## Part 2#

What is the direction of the electric field at the centre of the region between the plates?

• points towards the negative plate

• points towards the positive plate

• points parallel to the plates
