Consider an insulating sphere with 10 microCoulombs of charge uniformly distributed through its volume. The sphere is surrounded by a conducting spherical shell that has a total charge of -3 microCoulombs. Outside the conucting shell is an insulating shell with total charge 20 microCoulombs uniformly distributed through its volume. In the figure below, which shows a cross section of the structure, the darker shaded regions are insulators and the lighter shaded region is the condcutor.
a. How much charge is on the outer surface of the conducting shell in Coulombs?
b. What is the magnitude of the electric field at point A halfway between the outer surface of the insulatng sphere and the inner surface of the conducting shell, if that point is 5 centimeters from the center of the sphere? Give the field magnitude in Newtons/Coulomb.
