Hi, I'm trying to complete the weekly homework questions that have been assigned to me but I am quite stuck. I've searched all over the web and watched a few youtube lectures but I can't seem to wrap my head around Gauss' law. I was hoping someone could help point me in the right direction! 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Imagine an infinite line of charge with charger per unit (+)lamda. Surrounding the line of charge is a cylinder with inner radius a and outer radius b. The cylinder has a charge density of (ALPHA*r). Answer in terms of quantities given or a subset, use Gauss' law. Units of Alpha? Electric field for r < a Electric field for a < r < b Electric field for r > b I have seen so many examples of a typical problem with a gaussian sphere around a point charge, but I cannot wrap my head around how to go from that to solving a problem like this. I don't want to solution, just someone to point me in the right direction so I can go from there and hopefully arrive at the correct solution! Thanks!
