Consider an extended one-dimensional rod of length L and charge Q uniformly distributed. Determine the field from the rod at a point P a distance y from its center perpendicular to the rod.
I'm taking the E&M Class of a first-year Physics with Calculus series. We're working with determining the electric fields of extended objects with integration, and I'm having trouble with properly modeling the problems. If someone could show me a sample solution to one of these, I feel it could really help. Here goes: Consi
