Textbook Problem

A point charge q is located at the center of a spherical shell of radius a that has a charge −q uniformly distributed on its surface. Kind the electric field (a) for all points outside the spherical shell and (b) for a point inside the shell a distance r from the renter

(a)

To determine
The electric field outside the shell.

Explanation

Given info: The charge at the centre is q. The charge distributed over the spherical shell is -q. The radius of the shell is a.

Formula to calculate the electric field outside the shell is,

E=keqinsider2

  • ke is the Coulomb constant.
  • qinside is the charge inside the surface

(b)

To determine
The electric field inside the shell.
