    Magnetic field of a moving charge

    Homework Statement A negative charge q = −3.20×10-6C is located at the origin and has velocity υ⃗ =(7.50×104m/s)ι^+((−4.90)×104m/s)j^. At this instant what is the magnetic field produced by this charge at the point x = 0.230 m , y = -0.300 m , z= 0? Give the x, y and x components Homework...

    Gauss' Law vector form problem

    Thanks! I'll try and do it that way as i think thats the way we're supposed to! Thank you so much for all of your help.

    Gauss' Law vector form problem

    I often get the vector part wrong - so for when x = 4m would E due to q = kq/r2 where r = √(22+42) but that would be in-between the x/y directions. Would I then resolve this is the x direction by taking Esin(θ) where θ=arctan(4/2). And to this term i finally add the field gained in part 1).

    Gauss' Law vector form problem

    So could i just find the electric field of the point charge using kq/r2 and add it to the electric field found by using Gauss law?

    Gauss' Law vector form problem

    Homework Statement (a) A spherical insulating shell of radius R = 3.00 m has its centre at the origin and carries a surface charge density σ = 3.00 nC/m2. Use Gauss’s law to find the electric field on the x axis at (i) x = 2.00m and (ii) x = 4.00 m. Give you answers in the vector form. (b) A...
