Unformatted text preview: volts (b) Next, calculate the maximum possible potential relative to infinity in air of a metal sphere of only 0.6 mm radius. What is the maximum charge you can put on this sphere? C For that amount of charge, what is the potential of the sphere relative to infinity? volts These results are related to the fact that if a piece of metal has a small radius of curvature, it will spark at relatively low potential relative to infinity....
