Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Flux is only measured and defined for a surface. If you insist on thinking of the line as a surface, then it is a surface with zero surface area and corresponding, the flux is also zero.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I know, I mean from a certain distance r on a cylinder... \[\Phi = \int\limits\limits\limits_{}^{} E dA = Q _{enc} / \epsilon _{0} \] \[\lambda = Q / l \] \[\Phi = E(2 \pi rl) = Q _{enc} / \epsilon _{0}\] \[\ E = \lambda l / (\ 2 \epsilon _{0} \pi rl)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1right, and notice that \( \ell \) cancels. This is the calculation of the electric field, and you've got it.
