The conductor AB is charged uniformally with a charge density equal to t
Calculate the intensity of the electric field at a point P(its distance from AB is a) as shown below.

What have you attempted? The standard procedure is to calculate the contribution of an infinitesimal piece of the conductor and then integrate along the conductor.

I don't get the right output.The limits of integration are -R/tgB and R/tgA, I pick an infinitesimal piece, then define its distance from the point but there's sth wrong I guess...

Hi 10001!

(btw, a .jpg or .bmp is better than a .doc on this forum)

Show us what you've done!
