(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. An infinitely long cylinder of radius R contains a uniform charge density Rho. Calculate the electric field using Gauss' law for r> R and R>r

3. I attached a pdf with my attempt at r>R. My answer doesn't agree with those given http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/electric/elecyl.html#c3". I noticed that length canceled but I'm not sure if my set up was done correctly. I solved the same problem using direct integration of Coulombs law and there I took the limit of L as it approached infinity. Any suggestions would be great. Thank you :]

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution
