This problem models a thundercloud by a +40C charge at 10km height, -40C charge at 5km height and a 10C charge at a 2km height. It then has an airplane flying at 8km through the cloud. The crux of the problem is to calculate the Electric field on the plane beginning at the left of the cloud through to the right of the coud. I placed the y axis along the charges within the cloud. his means the airplane has a fixed y value and just changes in x. I also numbered the charges from bottom to the top.
