 Homework Statement:

We have a very long and nonconducting cylinder with radius r=0.021 m and even charge distribution with volume density ρ=0.18 μC/m3.
a) What is the electric field outside the cylinder with x=0.042 m from the axis of cylinder?
b) What is the electric field inside the cylinder with y=0.0087 m from the axis of cylinder?
 Relevant Equations:

Q=λl = ρAl = lρπr^2 (charge caused) (1)
E = λ / (2πεx^2) (electric field of cylinder) (2)
ε = 8.8542*10^12 C^2/(Nm^2)
a) I have calculated (1) λ = ρA = ρπr^2 = 2.49 * 10^10 C/m and placed it into (2) yielding E = λ / (2πεx^2) = 106.73 N/C.
This doesn't seem to be correct by the feedback, however.
b) Here just to consider the proportion of the cylinder mass constrained by y.
