Homework Help: EM maxwells equations problem infinite cylinder

  1. Nov 3, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Suppose we have a infinite cylinder of radius=R and with uniform volume charge density ρ. Use Maxwell's Equations or relationships from them to find E, B, V, and A everywhere.

    Pretty easy. But how do you approach the problem when you bring an angular vel into the mix? Suppose it is ω=(constant)*t z-hat and z-hat is along the central axis. (accelerates from rest)
    2. Relevant equations
    Maxwell's Equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Have not been able to solve this with the angular vel included.
