GRIFFITH Ex 3.8 with different V

  1. Feb 17, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    In the example of the grounded conducting sphere in the uniform electric field (Ex. 3.8), suppose we keep the constant of integration in V for large r, so that V -> EorPlcos[tex]\theta[/tex] + Vo the electric field at large r is unchanged. Find V outside the sphere under these conditions. What is physically different?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I think this is the same problem. I was just wondering if l = 2? And what will happened to the Vo??

    The boundary condition is changed this will change the outcome when calculating the field outside

    If I understand your question correctly, you just have to add V_0 to the previous answer for the potential anywhere.
