(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

x and y are nonconducting cylindrical shells. Both cylindrical shells are surrounding long wires that are carrying current. the x shell out of the page and the y shell into the page.

x radius has a charge per unit lenght = to +[tex]\lambda[/tex]

y radius has a charge per unit lenght = to -[tex]\lambda[/tex]

I need to calculate the maxwell stress tensor at a midway between x and y. (from the picture)

2. Relevant equations

T^{ij}=[tex]\epsilon[/tex]_{o}(E_{i}E_{j}-[tex]\delta[/tex]_{ij}E^{2})+(1/[tex]\mu[/tex])(B_{i}B_{j}-[tex]\delta[/tex]_{ij}B^{2})

3. The attempt at a solution

How do I exactly found the i and j component of the magnetic and electric field?
