A certain coaxial cable consists of a copper wire, radius a , surrounded by a concentric copper tube of inner radius c . The space between is partially filled (from b out to c ) with material of dielectric constant K. The goal of this problem is to find the capacitance per unit length of this cable. You may neglect edge effects.

Note that for technical reasons, we use the symbol l for charge per unit length, rather than the more typical λ . Do not get confused, l is not a length!

Calculate the radial component of the electric field in the region a<r<b . Express your answer in terms of a , b , c , K , l , r , and epsilon_0
