Essay Applications of Gauss Law * Electric Field Due To A Line Charge Consider a thin infinitely long straight line charge of linear charge?density??. Let P be the point?at a distance 'a' from the line. To find electric field at point P, draw a cylindrical surface of radius 'a' and length?l. If?E?is the magnitude of electric field at point P, then electric flux through the Gaussian surface is given by, ??=?E?נArea of the curved surface of a cylinder of radius?r?and length?l| Because electric lines of force are parallel to end faces (circular caps) of the cylinder, there is no component of fi ...
