The Charge Density Calculator will calculate the:

- Linear charge density of a conducting wire
- Area charge density of a conducting wire
- Volume charge density of a conducting wire

**Calculator Settings:** Medium is considered as uniform; the wire is considered at the same thickness everywhere.

The linear charge density of a conducting wire is C/m [Coulomb per metre] |

The area charge density of a conducting wire is C/m^{2} [Coulomb per square metre] |

The volume charge density of a conducting wire is C/m^{3} [Coulomb per cubic metre] |

Please note that the formula for each calculation along with detailed calculations are available below. As you enter the specific factors of each charge density calculation, the Charge Density Calculator will automatically calculate the results and update the Physics formula elements with each element of the charge density calculation. You can then email or print this charge density calculation as required for later use.

We hope you found the Charge Density Calculator useful with your Physics revision, if you did, we kindly request that you rate this Physics calculator and, if you have time, share to your favourite social network. This allows us to allocate future resource and keep these Physics calculators and educational material free for all to use across the globe. We believe everyone should have free access to Physics educational material, by sharing you help us reach all Physics students and those interested in Physics across the globe.

λ = *Q**/**L*

σ = *2Q**/**πd × (d + 2L)*

This formula derives from

σ = *Q**/**2πR × (R+h)*

where R = d/2 is the radius of cylinder base and h is the height of cylinder (in this instance, it is denoted by L).

ρ = *4Q**/**πd*^{2} × L

This formula derives from

ρ = *Q**/**πR*^{2} × h
