General Procedure for Calculating Electric Field of Distributed Charges 1. Cut the charge distribution into pieces for which the field is known 2. Write an expression for the electric field due to one piece (i) Choose origin (ii) Write an expression for Δ E and its components 3. Add up the contributions of all the pieces (i) Try to integrate symbolically (ii) If impossible – integrate numerically 4. Check the results: (i) Direction (ii) Units (iii) Special cases 4
