One plate equals the amount of charge on the other plate of a capacitor in real life circuits the amount of charge on, but these two charges are of different signs. By examining this formula we can deduce that a 1F (Farad) capacitor holds 1C (Coulomb) of charge when a voltage of 1V (Volt) is applied across its two terminals.

If air is the medium between the plates of the parallel plate capacitor, then the electrical field at the position of the grounded plate will be E=σ/2ε; and the electrical field at that place for the grounded plate itself will be E"=0, as for the grounded plate itself there will be equal but opposite amount of field produced. So net will be zero.
