    Electric Field of Nonuniform Line of Charge

    1. Homework Statement A thin rod extends along the x-axis from x=0 to x=L and carries a line charge density \lambda = \lambda_{0}*(x/L)^{2}, where \lambda_{0} is a constant. If L=0.19 m and \lambda_{0} = 40\muC/m, find the electric field strength at the point x=-0.19 m. (Hint: the resulting...
