Electric Field of Continuous Charge Distribution Divide the charge distribution into infinitesimal blocks. For 3D applications use charge per unit volume: ρ = Δ Q/ Δ V . For 2D applications use charge per unit area: σ = Δ Q/ Δ A . For 1D applications use charge per unit length: λ = Δ Q/ Δ L . Use Coulomb’s law to calculate the electric field generated by each block.
