Unformatted text preview: 17. The magnitude of the electric field produced by a uniformly charged infinite line is E = λ/2πε0 r, where λ is the linear charge density and r is the distance from the line to the point where the field is measured. See Eq. 24-12. Thus, λ = 2πε0 Er = 2π (8.85 × 10−12 C2 /N · m2 )(4.5 × 104 N/C)(2.0 m) = 5.0 × 10−6 C/m . ...
