## About the Electric Field due to infinite sheet

For an infinite sheet of charge, the electric field will be perpendicular to the surface. So, only the ends of a cylindrical Gaussian surface will contribute to the electric flux. In this case a cylindrical Gaussian surface perpendicular to the charge sheet is used. The resulting field is half that of a conductor at equilibrium with this surface charge density.
