# Calculate Net Charge On Sphere Placed At Center Of Conducting Shell

Question

A solid conducting sphere of 15 cm radius is located at the center of a spherical conducting shell, whose inner radius is 21 cm and outer radius 42 cm. At a distance of 50 cm from the center of these concentric conductors, the electric field is 2.1 x 105 V/m and is pointing outward. The shell has a net charge of  +3.1 µC. What is the net charge on the sphere at the center in µC?

(1) +2.7

(2) +1.8

(3) 0.0

(4) –1.2

(5) –3.1

Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
