An infinite line of negative charge begins at the origin and continues forever in the +y-direction. It has a uniform charge distribution of λ = -2.3 μC/m. Calculate the x and y-component of the electric field at the point (0,-3 m). ------- So immediately realized that Ex = 0 since te charge also lies on the y axis. I cannot seem to evaluate what Ey would be. L=Lambda Here's what I'm doing: E = 2kL / r E = 2(9*10^9)(-2.3*10^-6) / (-3) E = 13800 N/C What am I doing wrong? Can somebody please help me? I've been working on this problem for a very long time. Thanks in advance.
