Problem 51P

Negative charge -Q is distributed uniformly over the surface of a thin spherical insulating shell with radius R. Calculate the force (magnitude and direction) that the shell exerts on a positive point charge q located a distance (a) r > R from the center of the shell (outside the shell); (b) r < R from the center of the shell (inside the shell).

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 51P We shall have to apply Gaussâ€™ law here to find the electric field first at the required location. Once the electric field is calculated, the force acting on the positive charge can be calculated. The charge Q is distributed uniformly over the surface of the spherical shell. (a) When r > R, Applying Gaussâ€™ law, E.dS...
