Absolutely stumped here!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A geiger counter has a metal cylinder of 2.10 dimater with a wire stretched along it's axis whose diamtere is 1.34 x 10^-4 cm in dimater. If 855 V is applied between these two what is the electric field at the surface of the wire and the cylinder??

lets say lambda = Q / L

then flux = EA = E 2 pi r L = 4 pi k Qenc = 4 pi k lambda L

so 2 k lambda / r = E

then i integrate because V = integrate E dr

so that V = 2k lambda Log r

But now i m stumped as to how to proceed please help!!

thanks a lot
