I am just a man who has an insatiable desire for knowledge.

"For the rest, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is worthy of reverence and is honorable and seemly, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely and lovable, whatever is kind and winsome and gracious, if there is any virtue and excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think on and weigh and take account of these things [fix your minds on them]."~ Philippians 4:8

@MichaelBrown Will it still be true that I need to multiply the magnitude of the electric field at that point by two, because I am only applying Gauss's law to one plate?

@MichaelBrown Yes, I have actually; but I wasn't sure if I need it. So, should I generate a Gaussian plate, infinite in size, and place it between the two sheets? Then, find the magnitude of the electric field from sheet, and multiply it by two?

To be frank, the textbook you have provided appears to be a little advanced. Seeing as I am only in a undergraduate Physics II course, I am not sure it will be very helpful at the moment. Notwithstanding, I still glad you did provide me with a link, because the book does look interesting, and I'd like to read it someday.

comment Higher To Lower Electric Potential
@MichaelBrown Actually, I have one more question. I was able to answer the question I originally posed, except for part (b). I thought, because the electric potential energy was increasing at that point, that the electric potential at that point would be higher. After all, electric potential is defined one way as, "the amount of electric potential energy that a unitary point charge at that location would have." So, if the electron has more PE at the final position, wouldn't that mean the electric potential was greater at that final position too?
