1. Answer: Magnitude of the electric field at a point which is 2.0 mm from the symmetry axis is 18.08 N/C.

Explanation:

Given: Density = 80 (1 n = m) =  = 1.0 mm (1 mm = 0.001 m) = 0.001 m = 3.0 mm = 0.003 m

r = 2.0 mm = 0.002 m (from the symmetry axis)

The charge per unit length of the cylinder is calculated as follows. Substitute the values into above formula as follows. Therefore, electric field at r = 0.002 m from the symmetry axis is calculated as follows. Substitute the values into above formula as follows. Thus, we can conclude that magnitude of the electric field at a point which is 2.0 mm from the symmetry axis is 18.08 N/C.
