Question

A charged particle with a charge of −2⋅0 × 10−6 C is placed close to a non-conducting plate with a surface charge density of 4.0 × 10-6Cm0-2. Find the force of attraction between the particle and the plate.

Solution

The electric field due to a conducting thin sheet,

`"E" = sigma/( 2 ∈ _0)`

The magnitude of attractive force between the particle and the plate,

F =qE

`"F" = (q xx sigma)/(2∈_0)`

`"F" = ((2.0 xx 10^-6 ) xx ( 4.0 xx 10^-6))/(2 xx (8.55 xx 10^-12))`

F = 0.45 N

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
