Answer #1

(A) Let's assume a gaussian cylndrical surface of radius r = 5.9 cm and length l. This cylinder is coaxial with the other two cylinders given in the question.

Electric flux through it's sides is

Charge inside is,

Using Gauss' Law,

(B) This time, assume a gaussian surface of r = 12.5 cm

A very long coaxial cable consists of a solid cylindrical inner
conductor of radius R1 surrounded by an outer cylindrical conductor
with inner radius R2 and outer radius R3. The region between the
two conductors is filled with a waxlike insulating material to keep
the conductors from touching each other.
Part A If the inner and outer conductors carry equal currents I
in opposite directions, use Ampère's law to derive an expression
for the magnetic field as a function of...

A spherical, non-conducting shell of inner radius r1 = 7 cm and
outer radius r2= 16 cm carries a total charge Q = 18 nC distributed
uniformly throughout the volume of the shell. What is the magnitude
of the electric field at a distance r = 11 cm from the center of
the shell? (k = 1/4πε0 = 8.99 × 109 N.m2/C2)

Charge is distributed throughout a spherical shell of inner
radius r1 and outer radius r2 with a volume density given by ρ = ρ0
r1/r, where ρ0 is a constant. Determine the electric field due to
this charge as a function of r, the distance from the center of the
shell.
In this problem the volume charge density ρ is not uniform; it
is a function of r (distance from the center.)

A thin spherical shell with radius R1 = 4.00cm is
concentric with a larger thin spherical shell with radius 7.00cm .
Both shells are made of insulating material. The smaller shell has
charge q1=+6.00nC distributed uniformly over its surface,
and the larger shell has charge q2=?9.00nC distributed
uniformly over its surface. Take the electric potential to be zero
at an infinite distance from both shells.
