(a) The above figure (a) shows a nonconducting rod of length and uniform linear charge density . Assume that the electric potential is defined to be at infinity. What is at point at distance along the rod's  perpendicular bisector?
(b) Figure (b) shows an identical rod except that one half is now negatively charged. Both halves have a linear charge density of magnitude . With at infinity, what is at ?

On a dry winter day, you scuff your leather-soled shoes across a carpet and get a shock when you extend the tip of one finger toward a metal doorknob. In a darkroom, you see a spark perhaps long. Make order of-magnitude estimates of
(a) your electric potential and
(b) the charge on your body before you touch the doorknob. Explain your reasoning.
