N2 - We present a measurement of the forward-backward charge asymmetry (AFB) in ppbar -> Z/gamma -> X to e+e- + X events at a center-of-mass energy of 1.96 TeV using 1.1 fb^-1 of data collected with the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron collider. AFB is measured as a function of the invariant mass of the electron-positron pair, and found to be consistent with the standard model prediction. We use the AFB measurement to extract the effective weak mixing angle sin^2 ^W _eff = 0.2326 +/- 0.0018(stat) +/- 0.0006 (syst).
