Two infinite sheets of uniform surface charge density are oriented perpendicularly to each other as shown in the figure below. One sheet with uniform surface charge density $\sigma_1 = 12.0 \:\mu \rm C m^{-2}$ lies in the $y-z$ plane. The second sheet with uniform surface charge density $\sigma_2 = 20.0 \:\mu \rm C m^{-2}$ lies in the $x-z$ plane.
