Textbook Question
Chapter 16, Problem 43P

A point charge Q rests at the center of an uncharged thin spherical conducting shell. (See Fig. 16—34). What is the electric field E as a function of r (a) for r less than the inner radius of the shell, (b) inside the shell, and (c) beyond the shell? (d) How does the shell affect the field due to Q alone? How does the charge Q affect the shell?

Where is the electric field be (zero) * ?generated by a point charge
A region in space is bounded by a Gaussian surface that contains no charge. Will the electric field be zero at all times everywhere on this surface? Why or why not?
A point charge of 6 µC is located at x = -3.0 cm, and a second point charge of -10 µC is located at x = +4.0 cm. Where should a third charge of +6.0 µC be placed so that the electric field at x = 0 is zero?
