Consider a thin conducting shell of radius r carrying total charge q. Two point charges q and 2q are placed on the points A and B which are at the distances 0.5r and 2r from centre of the shell respectively. If the shell is earthed how much charge flows from to the earth?
The Attempt at a Solution
Generally when there is a symmetric configuration i take potentials due to all sources at the earthed surface and equate it to 0. But this is not a symmetrical problem. How to get the value?
