I need to find the electric field at all values of radius for an infintely long cylinder of charge. It's in insulator of radius R, and has a volume charge density(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]\rho = \rho_{0}(\frac{r}{R})[/tex] while r<R.

I need to find the electric field at all points first off. I'm not entirely sure how to go about doing this. I have gauss's law, but I'm not sure how to go about applying it in this case.
