Homework Help: Charged cylinder with charge inside, find force

  1. Oct 18, 2011 #1
    Problem is:
    You have a non-uniformly charged solid cylinder along x axis who's volume charge density (ρ=ρ°+vx), v is constant, changes according to where you are in reference to center of cylinder (origin). At center there is a charge q. Find force felt by the charge due to the cylinder. I know that I have to use F=Eq, but Im having trouble finding the electric field felt by the charge due to cylinder. Is that even possible? 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations
    Gauss's law

    3. The attempt at a solution
