Problem 4.16 A line of charge with uniform densrty p, extends between z : -Ll2 and z: L/2 along the z-axis. Apply Coulomb's law to obtain an expression for the electric field at any point P( r, O ,0) on the x-y plane. Show that your result reduces to the expression given by (a.33) as the length.L is extended to infinity. Solution: x-y plane Figure P4.16: Line charge of length I. Consider an element of charge of height dz at height z. Call it element l. The electric field at P due to this element is afE1. Similarly, an element at -z produces dE2. These two electric fields have equal z-components, but in opposite directions, and hence they will cancel. Their components along i will add. Thus, the net field due to both elements is dE : df,r * dLz - r2ficoso dz - -4;€oF- - tplcos9 dz 2nesRz
