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?
