Consider two concentric insulating cylinders of infinite length. The inner

cylinder is solid with radius

R, while the outer cylinder is a hollow shell with inner radius a and outer radius b. Both cylinders have the same volume charge density of +ρ. Using Gauss’s Law, find the electric field as a function of r (where r= 0 at the central axis) in the interval a≤r < b.

Note:

Your final equation should be in terms of given parameters of ρ,a,b,R, and r.

Step 1

Consider a Gaussian surface as a cylinder that have a radius of *r*, and the length *l*. Draw the diagram of the cylinder with the given parameters.

Step 2

The charge enclosed by the Gaussian cylinder is,

Step 3

Use Gauss’ law for the curved as well as fla...
