Electric Field Due to a Continuous Distribution of Charge

The following formulas can be used to determine the electric field E caused by a continuous distribution of charge, which are categorized into three different types.

Line Charge

where ρ is the line charge density.

Surface Charge

where ρ is the surface charge density.

Volume Charge

where

and
ρ is the volume charge density.
