(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

An electric charge is distributed along an infinite line (2x+3y=7) in xy-plane with density p_{l}= 3uC/m. Find the Efield intensity vector at point P (5,6).

2. Relevant equations

E = Integral of p_{l}/ (4*pi*E) * (R-R')/ (R-R')^3

3. The attempt at a solution

I just wanted to double check if all i need to do is find the distance of point P from the y-int and x-int and then just use them asRandR'in the above equation
