(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); part 2 The Electric Field of a Continuous Distribution of Charge

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

find the electric potential at point p

2. Relevant equations

v=Kq/r....v=Er.

3. The attempt at a solution

using this pic above and dQ=(Q/L)(dX)

v=(K)(dQ)/(L-(X_i)+d) then sub dq=dX(Q/L)

we get...

(KQ/(L))(dX/(L+d-(X_i)) then integrating

V=(KQ/L)((-ln(d))+(ln(L+d)))

is this correct? if not could some one tell me where i went wrong.

thanks in advance.
