(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

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***

2. Relevant equations

Q = gauss law.

where D = pl/(2*pi*rho) , rho (distance from line to sheet).

3. 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...
