## Electric Field Due To An Infinite Plane Sheet Of Charge

Let us today discuss another application of gauss law of electrostatics that is Electric Field Due To An Infinite Plane Sheet Of Charge:-

Consider a portion of a thin, non-conducting, infinite plane sheet of charge with constant surface charge density σ. Suppose we want to find the intensity of electric field E at a point p1near the sheet, distant r in front of the sheet. Continue reading “Electric Field Due To An Infinite Plane Sheet Of Charge”

## Gauss law for electrostatics derivation

Do you know that if we know the charge distribution, then we can calculate the electric field due to this charge distribution? This is based on the gauss law of electrostatics.

Statement. Total electric flux through any closed surface, is equal to 1/ε times the total charge enclosed by the surface. Continue reading “Gauss law for electrostatics derivation”
