Question

An infinitely long solid insulating cylinder of radius a = 4.3
cm is positioned with its symmetry axis along the z-axis as shown.
The cylinder is uniformly charged with a charge density ρ = 29
μC/m^{3}. Concentric with the cylinder is a cylindrical
conducting shell of inner radius b = 10.1 cm, and outer radius c =
12.1 cm. The conducting shell has a linear charge density λ =
-0.34μC/m.

What is V(P) – V(R), the potential difference between points P and R? Point P is located at (x,y) = (49 cm, 49 cm).

What is V(c) - V(a), the potentital difference between the outer surface of the conductor and the outer surface of the insulator?
