Electric Field of a charged wire (YF 21.54a)

A straight, non conducting plastic wire 8.50 cm long carries a charge density of +175 nC/m distributed uniformly along its length. It is lying on a horizontal tabletop.

Find the magnitude and direction of the electric field this wire produces at a point 6.00 cm directly above its midpoint.
