15. (a) Consider a Gaussian surface that is completely within the conductor and surrounds the cavity. Since the electric Feld is zero everywhere on the surface, the net charge it encloses is zero. The net charge is the sum of the charge q in the cavity and the charge q w on the cavity wall, so q + q w =0 and q w =
