Textbook Problem

Positive charge Q is located at the center of a hollow, conducting spherical shell. (a) Is the induced charge Qinner on the inner surface of the shell positive or negative? Answer P for positive, or N for negative. (b) Is the induced charge Qouter on the outer surface of the shell positive or negative? Answer P, or N. (c) Determine the ratio Qinner/Q and (d) the ratio Qouter/Q.

(a)

To determine
The induced charge on the inner surface.

Explanation

Since positive charge Q is placed at the centre, the inner surface will have Q charge distributed due to electrostatic induction

(b)

To determine
The induced charge on the outer surface.

(c)

To determine
The ratio of induced charge on the inner surface and Q.

(d)

To determine
The ratio of induced charge on the outer surface and Q.
