Two large parallel conducting plates separated by 6 cm carry equal and opposite surface charge densities such that the electric field between them is uniform. The difference in potential between the plates is 400 V. An electron is released from rest at the negatively charged plate.
(a) What is the magnitude of the electric field between the plates?
(b) Which plate is at the higher potential?
1. The negatively charged plate
2. the positively charged plat
a. 6666.67 V/m
b. 2. the positively charged plat
