Problem 24.80

A long cylinder with radius b and volume charge density r has a spherical hole with radius a 6 b centered on the axis of the cylinder. What is the electric field strength inside the hole at radial distance r 6 a in a plane that is perpendicular to the cylinder through the center of the hole? Hint: Can you create this charge distribution as a superposition of charge distributions for which you can use Gausss law to find the electric field?
