## neha2050 3 years ago The electric field due to a uniformly charged sphere is maximum at :

• This Question is Open
1. fortheloveofscience

outer surface..i guess

2. neha2050

u guess?

3. fortheloveofscience

see electric field is indirectly proportional to the square of distance..and at the centre its zero..so id say ki hona to surface pr hi chahiyen..but lemme confirm again

4. neha2050

ok

5. fortheloveofscience

see this question is a bit incomplete..as the E falls 1/r^2..the maximum strength would lie either inside the sphere or on the surface..it would depend upon the range given to you for the value of R

6. neha2050

there r 4 options centre of sphere inside the surface at the surface at infinite distance from the centre

7. fortheloveofscience

go for inside the surface..the lesser distance the better

8. neha2050

ok

once you move out of the sphere the sphere behaves like a point charge.- E=k*q/r2-so r=R at the surface maximum field strength... but if r->infinity then E=0.think so...
