Assume there are no other charges or conductors nearby...?
A net charge of 4.0 μC is applied on one side of a solid metal sphere 3.2 cm in diameter.
After electrostatic equilibrium is reached, the volume charge density inside the sphere is 0.
After electrostatic equilibrium is reached, the surface charge density on the sphere is 1.2x10^-3.
QUESTION: Assume there are no other charges or conductors nearby. Which of your answers depends on this assumption?
A. Volume Charge Density or B. Surface Charge Density
