**[SOLVED] Electric field and force ...**

**1. Homework Statement**

We have 2 identical thin rods , each has a length of 2a and carry a charge of +Q , uniformly distributed along their lengths , and both lie on the horizontal X-axis , and the distance between their centers is "b" ...

I need to calculate the electric field and the magnitude of the force exerted by the left rod on the right one.

**2. Homework Equations**

I know that F=Q*E

and the electric field done by a charged rod on a point in its axis is E= K*Q/d(d+L) where L is the length of the rod , and d is the distance between the rod and the point.

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

Well I didn't know how to start :S , no need for a full solution , I just need a push and tell me how to start to solve it .. thanks.
