1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Two spheres, each radius R and carrying uniform charge densities +rho and rho are placed so that they partially overlap. Call the vector from the positive center to the negative center dhat. Show that the field in the region of overlap is constant and find its value. 2. Relevant equations Gauss' law. 3. The attempt at a solution So I did Gauss' law for one sphere to find efield. What I got was E=(rho*r)/(3*episolon) So the efield from the positive sphere is E=(rho*r)/(3*episolon) efield from negative is the opposite of course. principle of super position, don't they add up to zero?
