Consider a “semi-infinite” nonconducting rod

(that extends infinitely to the right only) and has a

uniform charge density. Calculate the magnitude

and direction of the electric field at the point, P,

which is a distance of R away from the edge of

the rod.

Does the angle of the electric field, relative to the

orientation of the rod, change as R is increased?
