An uncharged solid sphere is paced in a constant external electric fieldE0. What is the force on the sphere?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I know ( already have found ) the electric potential and electric field around the sphere. Also worked out the surface charged density. I don't know how to calculate the force..Any help please?
