# A circular wire-l

Given:
Radius of the circular loop : a
Total charge on the wire : Q
Length of the cut off wire: dL
Formula used:
Electric field is given as: Here, k is a constant and k= =9× 109 Nm2C-2 . q is the point charge and r is the distance between the charge and the point of influence.
Here r=a=radius of the loop.

We know that, electric field at the center of the uniformly charged circular wire Which means that sum of electric field due to cut off wire and remaining wire is zero.
We know that, Where λ is the linear charge density. Q is the total charge and L is the length of the wire.
Charge on the element dL be dq:   Here L = 2πa=circumference. Here, a is the radius of the loop and L is the Length of the loop. Thus, electric field due to dL(cutoff wire) at the center is:   Since   Thus, magnitude of electric field at the center of the circular wire due to remaining wire is E= but in opposite direction to that of the field due to cut off wire.
