Question
(a) Find the total electric field at $x = 1.00 \textrm{ cm}$ in Figure 18.51(b) given that $q = 5.00 \textrm{ nC}$. (b) Find the total electric field at $x = 11.00 \textrm{ cm}$ in Figure 18.51(b). (c) If the charges are allowed to move and eventually be brought to rest by friction, what will the final charge configuration be? (That is, will there be a single charge, double charge, etc., and what will its value(s) be?)
