The electric field inside a uniformly charged sphere is zero. This is because the electric field inside a conductor is always zero, and a charged sphere acts as a conductor.
The electric field inside a non-uniformly charged sphere can be calculated using the equation E = kQr/R^3, where E is the electric field, k is the Coulomb's constant, Q is the total charge of the sphere, r is the distance from the center of the sphere, and R is the radius of the sphere.
No, the electric field inside a sphere does not change if the charge on the sphere is doubled. The electric field inside a sphere is only dependent on the distance from the center of the sphere and the radius of the sphere, not the amount of charge on the sphere.
No, the electric field inside a sphere cannot be negative. The electric field is a vector quantity, meaning it has both magnitude and direction. Inside a sphere, the electric field must point away from the center, so it can only have positive values.
The electric field inside a sphere decreases as you move closer to the center. This is because the electric field is inversely proportional to the distance from the center of the sphere. As you move closer to the center, the distance decreases, causing the electric field to increase.
