Electric field on a point around a finite wire

  1. Apr 4, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    In the figure below, there is a linear rectilinear uniform wire with charge density of ## \lambda ##. It its located at the Z axis, where z1 = a and z2 = b, (b> a)
    The point O is the origin of the coordinates. "R" is the cylindrical polar radial coordinate.

    a) Find the ##\vec{E}(\vec{r})## in the point P
    b) Determine the angulus between ## \vec{E}(\vec{r})## and the polar versor ## \hat{r}(\varphi )##

    2. Relevant equations
    Gauss Law maybe?
    ##\oint_S {E dA = \frac{1}{{\varepsilon _0 }}} Q##


    3. The attempt at a solution
    I honestly dont have any ideia on how to solve this. Do you guys know some material where I can find something similar?
