PHYS208 Fundamentals of Physics II

Hint for Ch. 24, 52P

Use a spherical gaussian surface, centered about the center of the charge sphere. Remember that only a fraction of the total charge is enclosed by the gaussian surface when r < R. Set up an integral to evaluate the enclosed charge and the total charge.

Long live Mr. Melon!
