A long, thin straight wire with linear charge density -λ runs down the center of a thin, hollow metal cylinder of radius R. The cylinder has a net linear charge density 2λ. Assume λ is positive. Find expressions for the electric field at the following locations. Use lambda for λ, pi for π, epsilon_0 for ε0, r for r, and R for R.

(b) outside the cylinder, r > R
