General function for E Field for point charge

  1. Feb 5, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Write down a general function where E=f(r,D) for sphere (D=3), (where D is a dimensionality parameter, which describes how many orthogonal directions x,y,z the field drops off from its maximum).

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution


    Am I correct in thinking I place the 3 where I have, and retain the r as an r.
    Then insert some function where the f is located?
