Unformatted text preview: Two infinitely long wires running parallel to the x axis carry charge densities + Î» and -Î» . The wires intersect the y-z plane at y= +a and at y= - a. (They are separated by a distance 2a, and are symmetrically placed around the x-axis). i. Find the potential at any point (x,y,z). ii. What is the equation for an equipotential surface and what is the shape of the equipotential surfaces?...
