Answer :


Surface charge density,σ1.0 × 10–4 C m–2

Edge length of the cube, e=1.0 cm=0.01m

Permittivity of free space, ε0= 8.85×10-12 F/m

Formula used

For a conducting plate infinite length), the electric field, E is,

And the electrostatic energy density or the energy per volume is,

Substituting eqn.1 in eqn.2 will result in,

Now the energy stored in volume V is

In the problem, we have to find the force inside a cube of edge e length.

So, we replace V with e3 in eqn.3


Now, substituting the known values in the above equation, it becomes,
