Amount of charge spherical conductor can hold in air

  1. Jan 28, 2008 #1
    I'm a little thrown off by this because we there is no voltage value given...
    And how does the air play into the problem? I just something to help me get started:

    What is the maximum amount of charge that a spherical conductor of radius 5.0 cm can hold in air?
