Chapter 22 22.2 Sketch qualitatively the electric field lines both between and outside two concentric conducting spherical shells when uniform positive charge q 1 is on the inner shell and a uniform negative charge q 2 is on the outer. Consider the cases q 1 > q 2 , q 1 = q 2 , and q 1 < q 2 . q1> q2 q1= q2 q1< q2 22.5 An atom of plutonium-239 has a nuclear radius of 6.64 fm and atomic number Z=94. Assuming that the positive charge is distributed uniformly within the nucleus, what are the magnitude and direction of the electric field at the surface of the nucleus due to the positive charge. Outside a uniformly charged sphere, the field looks like that of a point charge at the center of the sphere.

In unit-vector notation, what net electric field do the particle produce at the square’s center.
