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?...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. Itâ€™s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any universityâ€™s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLAâ€™s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
