Electric field inside hollow dielectric field

  1. Mar 6, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    How do I proof that the Efield inside a hollow dielectric sphere is 0?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Unless we know how the dielectric sphere is charged, ( whether the charge is on the surface of the sphere or distributed uniformly through out the sphere ) it is not possible to find the field inside the sphere.
