7. Three infinite nonconducting sheets, with uniform surface charge densities a 2iT and 3iT are arranged to be parallel like the two sheets in What is their order from left to right if the electric field E produced by the arrangement has magnitude E = 0 in one region and E = 2iT/eo in another region 8. A small charged ball lies within the hollow of a metallic spherical
shell of radius R. Here, for three situations are the net charges on the ball and shell. respectively (I) +4q. 0; (2) -6q, + IOq (3) +16q, -12q. Rank the situations according to the charge on (a) the inner surface of the shell and (b) the outer surface. most positive first 9. Rank the situations of Question 8 according to the magnitude of the electric field (a) halfway through the shell and (b) at a point 2R from the center of the shell. greatest first. 10 shows four spheres, each with charge Q uniformly distributed through its volume. (a) Rank the spheres according to their volume charge density, greatest first. The also shows a point P for each sphere, all at the same distance from the center of the sphere (b) Rank the spheres according to the magnitude of the electric field they produce at point P greatest first.
