PROBLEMS TO BE WRITTEN UP AND TURNED IN AT RECITATION This problem is due at your first recitation meeting after MON 09/06. The problem should be written on a single sheet of paper (front and back), or if multiple sheets are used, staple them together. For full credit, the work must be neat, with clearly labeled diagrams. The labels must be in BOTH words and symbols. For each part of each problem, you must BRIEFLY explain your strategy in words, as well as neatly showing your physics equations and math, with proper units. HRW Problem Supplement #1 - CHAPTER 23 25. A semi-infinite nonconducting rod (i.e. infinite in one direction only) has uniform positive linear charge density lambda. Show that the electric field at point P makes an angle of 45 degrees with the rod and that this result is independent of the distance R. (HINT: Separately find the parallel and perpendicular (to the rod) components of the electric field at P, and then compare those components.)
