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

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).
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.
