Homework Help: Resistance through a cylinder

  1. Feb 7, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Hey guys.
    So I got this cylinder with radius R1, R2 and length L as you can see in the pic.
    I need to find the resistance of the system for a current that goes from the inner cylinder to the outer cylinder (radial style :smile:).

    I uploaded my solution but I'm not so sure about it, can you please tell me if what I did is right?

    Thanks in advance.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Hi, Not sure if you sorted this or not, but the correct solution I believe is:-

    Resistance (ohms) = (Ln(R2)-Ln(R1)).ρ/(Pi.L)
