Homework Statement
I need to find the volume for 1 kg of diatomic oxygen for a pressure of 150,000 Pa and a temperature of 100K. This is really part of a larger project, and I need to make sure I'm not tripping up on little details. It's that 1 kg of diatomic oxygen that I am a bit unsure...

How can you use a charged rubber rod to induce a net negative charge on a metal sphere?
Homework Equations
None.
The Attempt at a Solution
OK, I understand the basics, but it seems like this question should be worded so as to inducing a net "positive" charge on...
Hello, everyone. I hope that you can help me get started on one of the problems I have due this week.
Homework Statement
Find the electric flux through the hemisphere z = (square root of a^2  x^2  y^2).

The Attempt at a Solution
I'm fairly certain I need Gauss' law to help...
