**1.**

Charge is distributed through an infinitely long cylinder of radius R in such a way that the charge density is proportional to the distance from the central axis: ß = A r, where A is a constant and ß is the density.

(a) Calculate the total charge contained in a segment of the cylinder of length L.

(b) Calculate the electric field for points outside the cylinder.

(c) Calculate the electric field for points inside the cylinder.

**3.**So far, I am a bit thrown off by the total charge on A. How can I calculate this without any additional information? I'm not sure if the total charge refers to the electric field around the charge or if it is something else I am not thinking about. I am also unsure of how to go about finding the charge separately for the inside and outside of the rod. Since I am not given a charge for the rod, it only has a specific charge density, I'm not sure how to draw e
