A very long uniform line of charge has charge per unit length 4.8*10^-6 Coulomb/meter and lies along the x-axis. A second long uniform line of charge has charge per unit length -2.4*106-6 coulomb/meter and is parallel to the x axis at y=.400 meters. What is the net electric field (magnitude and direction) at the following points on the y-axis: a). y=0.200 metes b). y=0.600 meters?
