how the electric field b/w parallel plate capacitor comes out to be sigma/ۥ

Expert Answer
Electric field E near infinite plane charge  is given as
 
E = σ / ( 2 εo )  
 
Where σ is surface charge density and εo is permittivity of free space.
 
In a parallel plates capacitor, plates dimension is very much greater than the separation distance. 
 
In that case, elctric field near a parallel plate of capacitor is considered as electric field near infinite plane charge.
 
As shown in figure , electric field due to positive charged plane and electric field due to negatively charged
plane are in same direction.
 
Hence net electric field Enet is given as
 
Enet = E+  +  E-  = [ σ / ( 2 εo ) ] + [ σ / ( 2 εo ) ] =  σ / εo
