1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data .A ring-shaped conductor with radius a = 0.025 m has a total positive charge Q = 0.125 x 10-9C uniformly distributed around it. The center of the ring is at the origin of coordinates O. What is the electric field (magnitude and direction) at point , which is on the x-axis at x = 0.4m. 2. Relevant equations dq = λ(ds) Q = λ(2πr) dE = ((k)(dq)/r2) * (r^) 3. The attempt at a solution So I figured out how to solve the electric field using the equations above, but for some reason I am not getting 0 for the electric field in the y-direction. I know that it has to be zero because all the electric fields cancel out in the vertical direction so I'm assuming my value for r^ is incorrect. Is it supposed to be (0.4i^ + 0.025j^)/(r)? It seems like it should be ((0.4i^ + 0j^)/(r) in order to get 0 for the vertical direction. After solving I end up with E = (6.98i^ + 0.4364j^) and the electric field in the x-direction is correct, but I don't think there is supposed to be a field in the y-direction. So, can someone tell me if my value for r^ is correct?
