1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Consider a line of length L=0.950 m and uniform positive charge per unit length λ=2.9 μC. Point A is a distance x=0.23 m from the center of the line, while B is the same distance from the line but a distance y=0.28 m farther along the line; point C is a distance z=0.050 m farther along the line than B. Answer true or false for the following statements. a) The potential at A is higher than the potential at B. b) The potential at B is higher than the potential at C. c) The electric field has a horizontal component at A. d) The electric field has a horizontal component at B. e) The electric field has a vertical component at A. f) The electric field has a vertical component at B. g) If the line were made of a conductor, the charges would re-arrange themselves rather than remaining in this configuration. 2. Relevant equations - 3. The attempt at a solution I'm trying to understand how to relate potential and electric field in this situation. As we have a line, we would have that the electric field is not pointing outwards of the line, as we would only have an horizontal component in A. On the other hand, on points B, C we would have an electric field both with a horizontal and vertical component. However, I'm having trouble with the potential questions, I'm guessing that they should be equal as we do not really care about components in this case. On the other hand, I am not sure what g. is asking for. Thank you in advance.
