**1. Homework Statement**

No variables, just a conceptual question.

**2. Homework Equations**

Flux = EA = Q/ε

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

Given a uniformly charged rod of FINITE length, could we use Gauss' law for electric flux to calculate the field at a point p a distance x away from the rod, so long as the whole rod is enclosed and x lies on the surface area of the enclosing gaussian surface? I tried it with the equation E = λ L/(ε A), but it didn't work. I also found multiple different A's could be used, but none of them gave the right answer. Could someone please explain to me where I'm going wrong with this?
