    hi there i have just started an electricity course and was wondering
    if any of you know where i could find an answer key for the text by
    sears and zemansky called university physics. Or perhaps someone will
    know how to to this question:
    Positive electric charge is distributed along the y-axis with charged
    per unit lenght of (lamda). Consider the case where charge is
    distributed only between the points y=a and y=-a. For points on the
    +x-axis, graph the x-component of the electric field as a function of
    x for values of x between x=a/2 and x=4a.
    My big question is how do you graph this?

    I believe you should look at Gauss' Law...
