## Homework Statement

A charge of uniform linear density 2.80 nC/m is distributed along a long, thin, nonconducting rod. The rod is coaxial with a long conducting cylindrical shell (inner radius = 5.20 cm, outer radius = 10.8 cm). The net charge on the shell is zero. (a) What is the magnitude (in N/C) of the electric field at distance r = 16.0 cm from the axis of the shell? What is the surface charge density on the (b) inner and (c) outer surface of the shell?

## Homework Equations

E= lambda / (2pi epsilon r) I think...that's all

## The Attempt at a Solution

I have the solution for part a) which I used the above formula to determine as 3.15e2 N/C. However, for parts b) and c), I am unsure as to whether I am to use that same formula, or if I'm supposed to use integral E*dA*cos(theta), and if so, would the value I determined from the first part be the E for the second formula? thanks! (I'm actually kinda lost on how to start the b & c parts...)
