A uniform electric field E in the x-direction is produced by an appropriate charge configuration. A thin sheet of charge s per unit area is placed perpendicular to the
x-direction at x = 0. If the initial charge configuration is assumed to be undisturbed by the presence of the sheet, what is the total electric field on each side of the sheet?
