Homework Help: Conducting cylinde

  1. Mar 30, 2010 #1
    Hello, people, it would be great if you can answer this particular physics question.

    A very long solid non conducting cylinder Radius R is uniformly charged with a Volume charge density. It is surrounded by a concentric cylinder tube of inner radius R3 as shown in Figure, and it also carries a uniform volume charge density?

    Determine the electric field as a function of the distance r from the center of the Cylinder for :

    a) 0<r<R1
    b) R1<r<R2
    c)R2<r<R3
    d)R3<r

    Hi and welcome to PF.
    You have to show some attempt in order to get help. Where are you stuck exactly? Do you know Gauss's law?
