What is the direction of electric field at a point near a thin infinite plane sheet of charge?
Asked by Topperlearning User | 16th Apr, 2015, 10:47: AM
When the sheet is positively charged then the electric field is directed normally away from the sheet. On the other hand if the sheet is negatively charged then electric field is directed towards the sides of sheet.
