    Are there different equations for the electric field in a large flat sheet - perhaps up to 2 feet by two feet. These may be different from the types of thin sheets that might be found in resistors - I don't know. I'm interested in the field in the sheet caused by point contacts made to the sheet. Is there one equation, are there more than one equation that are different for sheets of different compositions, is there an equation that is related to the properties of different sheets - rather than the names of different materials that may make up sheets; is there an equation for sheets having an infinitesimal depth, having a depth that makes the sheet more resemble three dimensional space; and at what depth would any formula for a sheet having an infinitesimal depth not apply?

    I think that what I need is a formula for E.
