Tutor description

Consider a thin infinitely long straight line charge of linear charge density λ. 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, Φ = E × Area of the curved surface of a cylinder of radius r and length

To find electric field at point P, draw a cylindrical surface of radius 'a' and lengthl. IfEis the magnitude of electric field at point P, then electric flux through the Gaussian surface is given by, ?=EArea of the curved surface of a cylinder of radiusrand lengthl| Because electric lines of force are parallel to end faces (circular caps) of the cylinder, there is no component of fi
