Problem 15E

Two very long uniform lines of charge are parallel and are separated by 0.300 m. Each line of charge has charge per unit length +5.20 µC/m. What magnitude of force does one line of charge exert on a 0.0500-m section of the other line of charge?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 15E Step 1 of 3: Two very long uniform lines of charge are similar to the two long wires parallel to each other having uniform linear charge density = 5.2 C/m and separated by distance r=0.3m. We need to calculate the magnitude of the force F= one line of charge exert on the l=0.05m section of the other line of charge of other wire, as shown in the figure below,
