Change in Speed of a Proton in Front of a Sheet of Charge

EANDM-ANKWHR

A proton is released from rest at a distance of $x_0 = 2.1 \text{ cm}$ in front of the center of a $6 \times 6 \text{ m}$ conducting sheet with a uniform surface charge density of $\sigma = 0.24 \; \rm{\cfrac{nC}{m^2}}$ placed upon it.

Note: $m_p = 1.67 \times 10^{-27} \text{ kg}$ and $e = 1.60 \times 10^{-19} \text{ C}$
