Question:

An infinitely long cylinder is uniformly charged with a volume density of 4 C/m{eq}^3 {/eq}. The cylinder has a radius of 5 cm. Calculate the electric field at a distance of 8 m from the axis of the cylinder. (The cylinder is not "conductor".)

Electric Current:

The flow of the charged particles in the conductor in the unit time determines the value of the electric current. The measurable unit for the electric current is ampere.

Given data

  • The volume density of the cylinder is {eq}{V_\rho } = 4\;{\rm{C/}}{{\rm{m}}^{\rm{3}}} {/eq}
  • The radius of the cylinder is {eq}r =...
