Feynman Cylinder Paradox

  title={Feynman Cylinder Paradox},
  author={John A Belcher},
1 Problem An infinitely long wire with linear charge density −λ lies along the z axis. An insulating cylindrical shell of radius a and moment of inertia I per unit length is concentric with the wire, and can rotate freely about the z axis. The areal charge density on the cylinder is σ = λ/2πa and is uniformly distributed. The cylinder is immersed in an… CONTINUE READING
