Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ah okay, so the point source can be treated as the center of the sphere, and light is propagating in all directions away from this point? you want to know the electric field vectors it produces?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1intensity at surface of the sphere \[I = \frac{ S }{ 4\pi r^2 }\] Each square follows the law so intensity will change at each one like, I ...I/4....I/9
