Matter & Electric Fields *A Spherical Shell of Charge *A Solid Sphere Charged throughout its Volume *Integrating the Spherical Shell Electric Field of a Spherical Shell of Charge   ualitative approach Q  ntegration I E of a Sphere Outside Direction: Divide into 6 areas: E of a Sphere Outside Magnitude: E6 E5 E1+E4 E2 E3 1 E of a Sphere Inside Magnitude: E of a Sphere Inside Implications Fill charged sphere with plastic. Note: E is not always 0 inside – other charges in the Universe may make a nonzero electric field inside. E of a Sphere Inside What is electric field right at the surface?
