Recall that for a uniform linear charge dis tribution, dq = λdx = 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 . 003 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points If x 1 = 0 m, x 2 = 4 . 48 m and the charge Q = 3 . 07 μ C, what is the magnitude E of the electric field at x = 9 . 9 m?
