Charge is distributed through an infinitely long cylinder of radius R in such a way that the charge density is proportional to the distance from the central axis: ß = A r, where A is a constant and ß is the density.

(a) Calculate the total charge contained in a segment of the cylinder of length L.

(b) Calculate the electric field for points outside the cylinder.

(c) Calculate the electric field for points inside the cylinder.
