- Homework Statement
- I am trying to answer the following two questions related to equipotential surfaces.
- Relevant Equations
The answer to the first question should be a sphere since for very large distances the multiple charges will act as a point charge. 1(a) is correct answer.
For the second question, I find it slightly vague. How can equipotential surface be zero, may be it's asking for the potential of equipotential surface. None of the options makes sense since it's not mentioned if the conductor sphere is charged or not. Also inside a conducting sphere, the equipotential region is not a surface but a three dimensional sphere.
If I assume the sphere is charged in question 2, then the best answer would be 2(b) Remains constant.
