Electric Field Intensity at the Origin!

Electricity and Magnetism Level 2

An infinite number of charges each of magnitude \(q\) are placed on the \(x\)-\(\text {axis}\) at the distance of \(1,2,4,8,16,\ldots\) \(\text{m}\) respectively. Find the intensity of electric field at the origin.

If the intensity can be expressed in the form \(\dfrac { q }{ n\pi { \varepsilon }_{ o } }\), find \(\Gamma (n+1)\).

  • Assume the medium to be vacuum.

  • Here, \(\Gamma (n)\) and \({ \varepsilon }_{ o }\) represent the Gamma function and permittivity of free space respectively.
