A charge per unit lenth [tex] \delta [/tex] is distributed uniformly along a straight-line segment of length L.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

a.) Determine the potential (chosen to be zero at infinity) at point P a distance y from one end of the charged segment and in line with it.

b.) Use the result of a. to compute the compoente of the electric field at P in the y direction

c.) Determine the componet of the electric field at P in a direction perpendicular ro the straight line.

here is the problem with image

If anyone could help me with the set up or get started that would be very helpful.
