Electric field and bounded charges on dielectric surfaces.

A uniformly charged straight wire of radius a carries linear charge density( lambda). The wire is coated with a linear dielectric material of susceptibility and external radius b.

a. Find electric field everywhere
b. Find the volume and surface bound charge densities

Solution Summary

The solution gives electric field everywhere and the densities of the bound charges on the cylindrical dielectric layer on the long cylindrical wire having a liner charge density.
