I have attached the question in a picture. I also attached a picture a drew as my attempt at understanding the question.
flux = EA = Qencl/εo
The Attempt at a Solution
So I am not sure how to interpret this question. Is the charge distributed uniformly? If it is then it can be very difficult to solve as you can see in my diagram the electric field goes every where.
Instead of a cylinder I was thinking of using a sphere as my surface... Does that even make sense?
Here is an answer I found online:
Do you guys agree? I notice the solution only used the top and bottom area of the gaussian surface...
