Gauss Law - Dielectric

  1. Oct 1, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    A positive charge q is in the center of an espheric hole of radius R inside a dielectric material with constant Ke. Find the electric field module inside the dielectric in a point very near to the hole surface and the polarization charge over the surface.

    2. Relevant equations

    Gauss Law, Equations of capacitors.

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I try to build a gaussian surface in wich i can apply gauss law, but i didn't find the way to get only one indeterminant (E for example, or qp)

    Thank you very much for your help!!
