What if charges are distributed throughout an object? Step 1: Cut up the charge into pieces r E R For each sphere: r r dQ E d ˆ 4 1 2 0 πε = outside: inside: dE = 0 Outside a solid sphere of charge: r r Q E ˆ 4 1 2 0 = for r>R A Solid Sphere of Charge

Inside a solid sphere of charge: E r r Q E ˆ 4 1 2 0 Δ = πε Δ Q = Q (volume of inner shells) (volume of sphere) Δ Q = Q 4 / 3 ⋅π r 3 4 / 3 R 3 = Q r 3 R 3 R r E = 1 4 0 Qr R 3 ˆ r for r<R Why is E~r ? On surface: E = 1 4 0 QR R 3 ˆ r = 1 4 0 Q R 2 ˆ r A Solid Sphere of Charge
