Problem 46 Medium Difficulty

The electric field everywhere on the surface of a charged sphere of radius 0.230 m has a magnitude of 575 N/C and points radially outward from the center of the sphere. (a) What is the net charge on the sphere? (b) What can you conclude about the nature and distribution of charge inside the sphere?

Answer

The electric field generated by the positive charge possessing spherical symmetry. Therefore,
one can conclude that the charge distribution is spherically symmetric.

Video Transcript

head of strains like start our discussion. Suppose we have a fair okay? And the charge is uniformly distributed or the self over the surface. The electric field on the surface is 5 75 new timber, Coolum and our radius off this various point toe three Jiro neater. Now we have to find out the net electric charge that is distributed or the surface oh so electric feel at this office is one upon four by upside of north Que by our square. If I was the radios off the spare So from here we will get the value off you will be few e into four by Obziler North goingto ask where and if report the values 5 75 in tow. Nine in 10 minutes by nine in 2.23 Whole square. For By solving this, we will get a value off feed 0.37 in tow. Panelists are minus nine Coolum. It's means that 3.37 Lana quit. Since this magnitude comes to a positive, it's means that nature of overcharge you is positive. If our fair is hollow before spare, his whole then all charged lies on the selfish only And if, if hours fear is sorely the whole charge, distribution is distributed. Or that's fair for that solar surface that is, charges uniformly distributed. Or were the stairs for solid stand. But for the whole elsewhere, charges only distributed or that surface Well, this is all for me for this video. I hope you will like that. Really? Thank you.
