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 Gauss’ 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 Gauss’ law, E.dS...
