The drum of the photocpying machine in problem 16 has a length of 42cm and a diameter of 12cm. What is the total charge on the drum? In problem 16 it says, The e filed just above the surface of the charged drum of a photocopying machine has a magnitude E of 2.3x10^5 N/C. So I first found the charge density [itex]\delta[/itex]. E = [itex]\delta[/itex]/2PIEor; [itex]\delta[/itex] = E(2PI)(8.85x10^-12)(.006m) = 7.67x10^-8; Then i used [itex]\delta[/itex] = q/Surface Area. q = (2PIrh)[itex]\delta[/itex]; q = 2PI(.006m)(.042m)*7.67x10^-8 = 1.21x10^-10 Which is wrong. The book got .32x10^-6C. Any idea where i messsed up at?
