Question details

Two spherical conductors (Homework #3) Two spherical conductors of different radii (Ri and R:) are connected by along fine conducting wire. Lets assume RiR, the smaller sphere carries the total charge Q (with surface charge density ) and the larger sphere carries the total charge a (with surface charge density a) Remember that the potential is always constant on and in the conductor. Using this fact, show that the ratio of the charge is given by R Q, R b) Show that the ratio ofthe charge density is given by c) Remember that the electrie field on the surface of the conductor is given by E- Using d) Recall the demo and SC Lab of the Van de Graaff generator, connected to a volunteer student. this fact, explain why the electric field becomes very large near sharp point. Explain why hivher hairs were stretched out.
