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?

Answer Section#

Part 2#

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

Answer Section#

  • points towards the negative plate

  • points towards the positive plate

  • points parallel to the plates
