Electric Field of a Sphere

Home | Physics 2 | Electric Forces and Fields | Electric Field of a Sphere

Below are two charged spheres separated by a distance, X = 0.1 m from center to center. The sphere on the left carries a charge of 10 nC and has a radius 0.01 m. The sphere on the right carries a charge of -2 nC. Find the electric field at point A, which is 0.005 m from the center of the large sphere.
