Fig. 3 3. A semi-infinite rod carrying a uniform linear charge density λ + lies along the + x axis as shown in Fig. 3. (a) Find the electric field at a point P on the + y axis. (b) If a rod of length L , carrying linear charge density + , is placed along the + y axis with its lower end at a distance h from the origin, what is the electric force acting on the rod?...
