(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

We have a solid cylinder of radius R_{0}, and it has a uniform charge density p. The length is much greater than its radius, so it appears almost infinite.

2. Relevant equations

Find the electric field inside the cylinder where r<R_{0}and outside the cylinder where r>R_{0}

3. The attempt at a solution

I know that you need to use Gauss's law on this and I believe that for inside the cylinder it will be E= p/(pi*r^2*ε0)

Will it be the same for outside the insulator?
