Concept Questions :-

To find electric field, we enclose the distribution in a Gaussian cylinder of radius r and length l.

The flux linked with the cylinder

E.dA= CurvedE.dA + FlatE.dA =E.(2πrl)cos0°+2EdA cos90°φtotal=E×2πrlBy Gauss law φ=qencε0=λ×lε0                  [where λ is linear charge density]E×2πrl=λ×lε0E=λ2πε0r

Variation of E with r is also shown graphically here
