In Problems *63* through *66* you are given the equation(s) used to solve a problem. For each of these

a. Write a realistic problem for which this is the correct equation(s).

b. Finish the solution of the problem

(a) Find the Electric field strength at point on the rod's axis at distance from the center of an infinite charge rod, with the linear charge density is in

(b) The solution is

__Given__ :

__Theory used__ :

The* Electric field* of an infinite line charge with a uniform *linear charge density* can be obtained by a using __Gauss' law__. Considering a Gaussian surface in the form of a cylinder at radius , the electric field has the same magnitude at every point of the cylinder and is directed outward.

(a) Realistic problem :

On an infinite charge rod, let the linear charge density is .

In , find the electric field strength at point on the rod's axis at distance from the center.

(b) Solution :
