An infinite plane in the xz plane carries a uniform
surface charge density σ1 = 66
nC/m2. A second infinite plane carrying a uniform charge
density σ2 = 32nC/m2 intersects the
xz plane at the z axis and makes an angle of 30°
with the xz plane as shown in the figure below. Find the
electric field in the xy plane at each of the following
locations.
(a) x = 6 m, y = 2 m

Two very large parallel sheets are 5.00 cm apart. Sheet A
carries a uniform surface charge density of -7.30 μC/m2 , and sheet
B, which is to the right of A, carries a uniform charge density of
-13.6 μC/m2 . Assume that the sheets are large enough to be treated
as infinite.
A) Find the magnitude and direction of the net electric field
these sheets produce at a point 4.00 cm to the right of sheet
A.
B) Find the...

Two infinitely long parallel wires have a uniform charge per
unit length lambda and -lambda respectively. The wires are parallel
with the z axis. The positively charged wire intersects the x axis
at x = -a. and the negatively charged wire intersects the ,r axis
at ,r = +a. (a) Choose the origin as the reference point where the
potential is zero, and express the potential at an arbitrary point
(x. y) in the xy plane in terms of .v,...

A solid sphere of nonconducting material has a uniform positive
charge density ρ (i.e. positive charge is spread evenly throughout
the volume of the sphere; ρ=Q/Volume). A spherical region in the
center of the solid sphere is hollowed out and a smaller hollow
sphere with a total positive charge Q (located on its surface) is
inserted. The radius of the small hollow sphere R1, the inner
radius of the solid sphere is R2, and the outer radius of the solid...

We have an infinite sheet that is vertical. Instead of having a
uniform charge density, it has a uniform current density, which is
the current per unit length carried by the sheet (and has units of
Amperes per meter). For reference,let z be vertical, and y be
horizontal, so that x is coming out of the page. That means the
sheet occupies the entire xz-plane, and positive y-values are to
the right of the sheet.Let the current density point in...
