The ca ble extends out perpendicular to the plane shown. The charge on the inner conductor per unit length along the cable is λ and the corresponding charge on the outer conductor per unit length is λ (same in magnitudes but with opposite signs) and λ > 0. Q R 1 R 2 R 3 b Q Find the magnitude of the electric field at the point a distance r 1 from the axis of the inner conductor, where R 1 < r 1 < R 2 . 1. E = λR 1 4 π ǫ r 1 2 2. E = λR 1 3 π ǫ r 1 2 3.

Find the capacitance C of the cable. Correct answer: 5 . 56178 nF. Explanation: Let : ℓ = 100 m , R 1 = 0 . 673218 mm , and R 2 = 1 . 83048 mm . We calculate the potential across the capaci tor by integratingE · d s. We may choose a path of integration along a radius; i.e.,E · d s =E dr .
