The Coulomb constant is 8 . 98755 × 10 9 N · m 2 / C 2 Which of the following integrals is correct for the magnitude of the electric field at x on the x axis?

Recall that for a uniform linear charge dis tribution, dq = λ dx = Q L dx = Q x 2 − x 1 dx . Furthermore, the point x is a distance ( x − x ) from a charge element dq . Hence integrating from x = x 1 to x = x 2 yields E = integraldisplay x 2 x 1 k e Q ( x 2 − x 1 )( x − x ) 2 dx . 002 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points If x 1 = 0 m, x 2 = 5 . 59 m and the charge Q = 3 . 49 μ C, what is the magnitude E of the electric field at x = 8 . 2 m? Correct answer: 1465 . 59 N / C. Explanation: Let : k e = 8 . 98755 × 10 9 N · m 2 / C 2 , x 1 = 0 m , x 2 = 5 . 59 m , x = 8 . 2 m , and Q = 3 . 49 μ C .
