Electric Fields Due to Three Uniform Planes of Charge

EANDM-S1PB07

The figure below shows three planes of uniform surface charge density. The sheets of charge density are much larger than the spacing between the sheets. Note: the figure is not to scale. The left and right planes have a surface charge density $+\sigma$ Coulombs per square meter, whereas the center plane has a surface charge density $-2 \sigma$ Coulombs per square meter.
