Problem 23.73

Electric charge is distributed uniformly along a thin rod of length a, with total charge Q. Take the potential to be zero at infinity. Find the potential at the following points (Fig. P23.73): (a) point P, a distance x to the right of the rod, and (b) point R, a distance y above the righthand end of the rod. (c) In parts (a) and (b), what does your result reduce to as x or y becomes much larger than a?

Frontiers in Astronomy Week 3 Radiation- Ch. 3  Information from the skies  light was the only connection to space  today, light is nothing else but a form of radiation, electromagnetic waves  besides probe exploration (limited to our solar system), light and electromagnetic radiation is still the main connection to cosmos  other connections are the cosmic rays, neutrino and gravitational waves but the main connection is electromagnetic radiation  Electromagnetic radiation  transmission of electromagnetic energy through space without physical connection through varying electric and magnetic fields  Ex. Light, radio signals  Waves  moving disturbance
