This is the expression used to obtain the equipotentials shown next. The center dot in the figure is the intersection of the z axis with the xy plane, and the dots on either side are the intersections of the wires with the plane. 117. From the previous chapter, we know that the radial field due to an infinite line- source is E r = λ 0 ε which integrates, using Eq. 24-18, to obtain dr r V r r if r r f f i i f F H G I K J z λ λ 00 ln . The subscripts i and f are somewhat arbitrary designations, and we let V i = V be the potential of some point P at a distance r i = r from the wire and V f = V o be the potential along some reference axis (which will be the
