Hey so today i was solving a question where there were 2 like charges kept at a short distance from each other on either sides of an infinite sheet of charge which we know has an electric field $${\sigma}/{\epsilon} $$ near it and we have to calculate the net electric force on one charge. So i just thought that if the second charge kept on the other side of the infinite sheet of charge transmits an electric field, how does its electric field crosses the infinite sheet of charge cause the sheet of charge is also positively charged and we know like charged repel. Even if we assume that the electric field of the charges is stronger than that of the sheet , how does that electric field of charge transmitted across that infinite sheet, on the atomic level ? or something else can someone please give a detailed explanation
