# The Intensity of the Electric Field at a Point at a Perpendicular Distance ‘R’ from an Infinite Line Charge, Having Linear Charge Density ‘λ’ is Given By: - Physics (Theory)

MCQ

The intensity of the electric field at a point at a perpendicular distance ‘r’ from an infinite line charge, having linear charge density ‘λ’ is given by:

#### Options

• E = (1/(4π∈_0))λ/r

• E = (1/(4π∈_0)) (2λ)/r

• E = (1/(4π∈_0)) λ/r^2

• E = (1/(4π∈_0)) (2λ)/r^2

#### Solution

E = (1/(4π∈_0)) (2λ)/r

The intensity of the electric field at a point at a perpendicular distance ‘r’ from an infinite line charge, having linear charge density ‘λ’ is given by: E = (1/(4π∈_0)) (2λ)/r
