## Homework Statement

## Homework Equations

[tex]{\phi} = \int E dA = \frac{QL}{\epsilon_0}[/tex]

## The Attempt at a Solution

I'm aware of the definition of Gauss's law of electrostatics (however evidently I'm not very good at applying it), but I can't seem to fully answer the rest of the question.

An example in my book states the equation above and I've managed to simplify it to this state:

[tex]E = \frac{Q}{2\pi r \epsilon_0}[/tex]

But I was wondering if this is the right route to go down, and if this is a correct equation, how I could use it to solve this problem.

Thanks in advance for any help, will be checking back sporadically.
