For such cases, Flux: Flux: E field from an infinite line of charge with charge density E field from an infinite line of charge with charge density Example Example By symmetry, E field points By symmetry, E field points radially radially outward outward ( for positive ( for positive ) E r E r d A r d A r ( 29 2 sides E d A E r rL = r r r r L L C ho o s e c ylinde r o f ra dius r, le ng th L, c e nte re d o n the line o f c ha rg e . and and ends E d A = r r ( 29 2 enclosed Q L E d A E r rL = = = r r s s o o ( 29 2 E r r = Phys ic s 212 Le c ture 4, S lide Phys ic s 212 Le c ture 4, S lide 4 Exam ple s with S ym m e try = enc Q E A Spherical Cylindrical Planar 2 4 = A r 2 4 = enc Q E r 2 = A rL 2 = E r 2 2 = A r 2 = E 21 = o enc Q A d E r Phys ic s 212 Le c ture 4, S lide Phys ic s 212 Le c ture 4, S lide 5 C he c kpo int 4 27 In which case is E at point P the biggest?
