How will i solve this?

    In fair weather at the surface of the earth there is an electric field of approximately 100N/C directed toward the earth (radially inward direction).If the same electric field existed everywhere on the earth's surface,calculate the total charge that would be stored in the earth .(E=100N/C , Rearth=6.37*10^6m Eo=8.85*10^-12

    I think this is a homework!
    You should look to the electrical field over a conductor surface with a given surface charge.
