## Homework Statement

"A cylindrical shell of length 230 m and radius 6 cm carries a uniform surface charge density of σ = 14 nC/m^2. What is the total charge on the shell? Find the electric field at the end of a radial distance of 3 cm from the long axis of the cylinder."

## Homework Equations

Gauss's Law

Volume of a cylinder=∏r^2*h

## The Attempt at a Solution

The textbook hints that it has something to do with Gauss's law. As I searched for hints online, I only found answers with cylindrical shells with infinite lengths. The fact that we still haven't covered Gauss's Law in class (this is due tomorrow at noon), probably doesn't help either.

So maybe... a quick, crash course on how I'm suppose to use Gauss's Law for a problem like this, and how to do it? The set up, at least?
