I have given a cylindrical capacitor with an inner plate(radius=a) and variable radius r. I want to derive an expression, using Gauss's law, for the potential difference V between the inner plate and a point between the plates(radius=r) for the cylindrical capacitor as a function of the inner radius "a" and the variable radius "r".(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I need to compare the theoretical equation with an empirical equation obtained from a plot of the radius from axis vs. the potential difference V........

Someone please help!!!!
