Electric Field Question 21.99 Two 1.20 m non-conducting wires meet at a right angle. One segment carries a + 2.50 μC of charge distribution uniformly along its length, and the other carries -2.50 μC distributed along it as shown in the figure. a) Find the magnitude and direction of the electric field these wires produce at point P, which is 60.0cm from each wire. b) If an electron is released at P , what is the magnitude and direction of the net force that these wires exert on it.

Electric Field Answer 21.99 To answer this problem we must have some starting ground. The first is of course Coulomb's formula for electric field. However, since this problem involves two continuously charged bodied we must use the integral from of Coulomb's law. r r dq k E d E a a ˆ 2 - = = The second starting concept is that the electric fields from each separate wire add through the idea of superposition.

r r dq k E d E a a ˆ 2 - = = For line uniform line charge we must replace dq

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
