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

Part C
Calculate the magnitude of the force that the charge distribution Q exerts on 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
