This problem concerns the force (which is a vector!) on q . a) What form does dimensional analysis imply for the force? (10 points) b) What must be the limiting form of the force for x a ? (10 points) c) What must be the limiting form of the force for x = a/ 2? (10 points) d) Use the method of images to express the force as an infinite sum.
