Gauss’s law can be used to show that the electric field at a given di

    Outside a spherically symmetric charge distribution of net charge Q, Gauss’s law can be used to show that the electric field at a given distance

    a) must be greater than zero
    b) must be zero
    c) acts like it originated in a point charge Q at the center of distribution
    d) must be directed inward
    e) must be directed outward


    I think is C.
