    \[\oint E\cdot dA=\frac Q{\epsilon_0} \] \[E 4\pi rL=\frac{Q}{\epsilon_0}\] where \(a\le r \le b\) The charge density =\(\lambda=\frac Q L\) is this the charge density of the inner cylinder? \[E=\frac{Q}{\epsilon_0 r \pi L}=\frac{\lambda}{\epsilon_0r\pi}\] \[dV=- Edr\] \[V=-E\int_a^b \frac 1 r dr\] \[V=\frac{\lambda}{\epsilon_0\pi} [ln(b)-ln(a)]\] \[C=\frac Q V\] I'm trying to sub for Q \[Q=\frac {\lambda}{L} \] ?

    I think I should be able to sub for Q

    Ok i'll try it \[C=\frac Q V=\frac {\lambda }{L\frac{\lambda ln(b/a)}{\epsilon_0\pi}}=\frac{\epsilon_0 \pi}{Lln(b/a)}\]

    \[C=\frac{\lambda \;L\;2\pi\epsilon_0}{\lambda \ln(b/a)}=\frac{L2\pi \epsilon_0}{\ln(b/a)}\]
