###### Question details

A uniform line charge extends from x = - 2.3 cm to x = + 2.3 cm and has a linear charge density of = 5.8 nC/m. (a) Find the total charge. nC * Find the electric field on the y axis at the following distances. (b) y = 4 cm N/C (c) y = 12 cm N/C (d) y = 4.5 m N/C (e) Find the field at y = 4.5 m, assuming the charge to be a point charge. N/C
