Thank you in advance for taking the time to read my question and any help you may provide.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So, my question:

suppose there is a line segment with a gradient of charges on it.

e.g. +5 +4 +3 +2 +1

if sensors surrounded this line segment in a cylindrical fashion, with the line segment being normal to the walls of the cylinder, would the large +5 charge "over-shadow" the others or would the sensors be able to distinguish the gradient?

This is NOT a homework question, but a stepping stone along a path I have not fully investigated.
