a large thin conducting plate has a net charge q.
the charge density on each side of conducting plate is : q/2A
electric field on each side is :q/2epsilon=q/4Aepsilon

Does the charge on the right surface contribute to the electric field to the left of the plate?

    E on each side is indeed q/2epsiolon

    No, E cannot transmit through a conductor.
