1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A certain atom of has 89 protons. Assume that the nucleus is a sphere with radius 7.11e-15 m and with the charge of the protons uniformly spread through the sphere. At the nucleus surface what is the magnitude of the electric field produced by the protons? 2. Relevant equations E=F/q F=(q1q2 * 8.99e9)/ d2 a single proton has a charge of 1.6e-19 C 3. The attempt at a solution[/b] So my understanding of the problem is they want me to calculate the electric field at the edge of the nucleus. so I started my assuming the electric field being at the center of the nucleus with my test charge at the edge of the nucleus. So I did 89 times the charge of a single proton times the constant all divided by the radius squared and I get a number of 2.53e21 N/C which I am told is wrong, what did I do wrong?
