Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0point m is halfway between o and o1. o and o1 are on peripherry of ring and sphere respectively.. they are like in a strt line.. the sphere and the ring are symmetrical and o and o1 lie on the diameter..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the flux in the sphere.. i'm sorry.. wanted to write something else. just messed up..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1is it a metal sphere? because if it is, the flux through it is zero...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i dont think it is.. the answer is not zero.. so its not..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1but still, the charge is outside the sphere, isn't it? so q(enclosed)=0. And therefore, the flux though the sphere is zero.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no it isnt outside the sphere.. its at M..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0just reply if you get it.. i'm going off for now.. i have a similar problem if that would help you.. suppose if the charge is placed uniformly on the ring.. then the part with the sphere is only q/3.. so the flux there wuld be q/3epsilon.. i dont think its of any help.. just in case..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i think the question is flawed. Here's why: the only way you can end up with an answer of \(\Large \frac{4q}{3\epsilon_0}\) is if there's a charge of +q/3 on the ring. [That makes q(enclosed) = q + (q/3) = 4q/3 and so the flux turns out to be \(\large \frac{4q}{3\epsilon_0}\).] But that's not what happens, When you place that positive charge (+q) there, the part of the ring on the inside of the sphere becomes negatively charged and the part outside becomes positively charged (Of course, here I'm assuming that the ring and the sphere are not touching each other). So, the net charge inside the sphere is \( \text{q(something)}\), which is obviously less than \(\Large \frac{4q}{3}\).
