I'm trying to calculate the electric force between two uniform line charges on a single axis; does anyone have any sample solutions?

calculate the E-field for one of the line charges. find out the total charge on the other. then you are practically there.

rinse, repeat for the other line of charges.


although there will be a problem if the line charges are infinite in length...
:yuck:
