A linear charge pl=2.0microC/m lies on the y-z plane.from[0 -1 1] to [0 1 1]. Find the flux passing through the plane extending from 0 to 1.0m in the x-dir and -infinity to +infinity in the y direction.
***i wrote this in matlab and got 0.5micro as answer***
Q = gauss law.
where D = pl/(2*pi*rho) , rho (distance from line to sheet).
The Attempt at a Solution
I found D = 0.32 micro C/m^2. But how do i consider the area so that i can multiply with D to get the flux ( i am assuming no integration required in this case becase the flux is perpendicular to the sheet..
Any help would be appreciated...
