A very long thin wire carries a line charge density, λ\lambda = 361.0 nCm\frac{nC}{m}. Find the electric potential difference between points 3.0 m and 6.0 m on a perpendicular radius to the axis of the wire, provided the perpendicular radius is not near either end of the wire. (this problem requires calculus)
