### Quiz 4 -- Gauss's Law

A solid nonconductive sphere of radius *R* has volume charge density *rho* that varies with the radius as

*alpha* is a positive constant, and *r* is the distance from the
center of the sphere.
Use Gauss's law to determine the magnitude of the electric field at radial
distances *r*<*R*
and *r*>*R*

*For fewer points, you may consider the charge to be distributed uniformly.*

*For even fewer points, you may consider a point charge...*
