Question

Positive charge Q is distributed uniformly along the x-axis from x=0 to x=a. A positive point charge q is located on the positive x-axis at x=a+r, a distance r to the right of the end of Q. (Figure 1)

Part A

Calculate the x-component of the electric field produced by the charge distribution Q

at points on the positive x-axis where x>a.

Express your answer in terms of the variables

Q, a, x, r, and appropriate constants.

Part B

Calculate the y-component of the electric field produced by the charge distribution Q at points on the positive x-axis where x>a.

Express your answer in terms of the variables

Q, a, x, r, and appropriate constants.

Part C

Calculate the magnitude of the force that the charge distribution Q exerts on q.

Express your answer in terms of the variables Q.

Part D

In what direction the charge distribution Q exerts force on q.

In what direction the charge distribution exerts force on .to the left to the right

Step 1

(A)

The equation for the electric field due to the charge distribution is given by

Step 2

B)The equation for the y-component of the electric field due to the charge distribution at points on the x-axis is given by

Step 3

(D)Since the charge distribution Q and the charge q are positive, the force between them will be repulsive. The...
