It was shown in Example 21.11 (Section 21.5) in the textbook that the electric field due to an infinite line of charge is perpendicular to the line and has magnitude E=λ/2πϵ0r. Consider an imaginary cylinder with a radius of r = 0.105 m and a length of l = 0.410 m that has an infinite line of positive charge running along its axis. The charge per unit length on the line is λlambda = 5.65 μC/m .

What is the electric flux through the cylinder due to this infinite line of charge?

What is the flux through the cylinder if its radius is increased to r=0.565 m ?

What is the flux through the cylinder if its length is increased to l=0.785 m ?

When you calculate the net electric field in a location due to the presence of more than one large charge (Q), it is generally not helpful to include the sign of the charges in the equation for electric field. Why not? Specifically, what does the sign of a charge tell you about the direction of the electric field, and what does the sign of a charge NOT tell you about the direction of the electric field?
