Short Answer

Estimate the electric fields at points 1 and 2 in Figure Q26.5. Don’t forget that is a vector.

The electric field varies in the direction 1 to 2.

See the step by step solution

Step by Step Solution

Step 1 : Given information and formula used   

Given :

Theory used :

Electric Field is given by :

Step 2 : Estimating

(a) We can see that the potential difference in , hence the field strength at this point will be . The formula is as follows:

(b) We can see that the potential difference in , hence the field strength at this location will be . The formula is as follows:

The vector will point to the left in both circumstances, parallel to the -axis.
