Homework Help: Gauss's Law

  1. Mar 1, 2004 #1
    A hollow spherical shell is uniformly charged with a total charge Q. Show that the electric field outside the shell is everywhere the same as the field due to a point charge Q located at the center of the shell.

    As in your other thread, just use Gauss's Law. Do you need help applying Gauss's Law?

    Just for a sidenote, be happy that you get to use Gauss's Law for this. Proving it without it is... ugly, to say the least.
