Quiz 4 -- Gauss's Law

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

[density formula]

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

[ball of charge]

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

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