Question: Two identical metal balls of radii 2.50 cm are at a center -to-center distance of 1.00 m from each other (Fig. P26.34). Each ball is charged so that a point at the surface of the first ball has an electric potential of +1.20 × 103 V and a point at the surface of the other ball has an electric potential of −1.20 × 103 V. What is the total charge on each bah? FIGURE P26.34 Answer : The expression for the electric potential is as follows: Here, V is the electric potential, k is the Coulomb’s constant, q is the charge, and r is the radius of the sphere. As per the question, we need to determine the electric potential due to a solid conducting sphere at various points, considering the potential to be 0 at infinite distance from its centre.
