A charge of 8 nC is placed uniformly on a square sheet of nonconducting material of side 22 cm in the yz plane.(d) What is the magnitude of the electric field to the right (x > 0) of the right face of the slab?

You seem to have the surface charge density. You know the E field due to a piece of charge is kq/r^2. Integrate over the surface to add up the field contributions due to all bits of the surface charge. Most likely this question is made easier by only asking for the E field on the x-axis if the plate is centered on the origin?

your charge is 8nc on a square plate of 22 cm x22 cm since E=(surface charge density)/2ε₀ so answer wolud be 8nc/22/22/2ε₀
