+1 vote

A uniformly charged rod of length L and total charge Q lies along the x axis as shown in in the figure below. (Use the following as necessary: QLd, and ke.)

(a) Find the components of the electric field at the point P on the y axis a distance d from the origin.

(b) What are the approximate values of the field components when d >> L?
