1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A point charge q1 = -7 μC is located at the center of a thick conducting shell of inner radius a = 2.6 cm and outer radius b = 4.9 cm, The conducting shell has a net charge of q2 = 1.1 μC. What is Ex(P), the value of the x-component of the electric field at point P, located a distance 8.9 cm along the x-axis from q1? 2. Relevant equations (1.)For an electric field outside of a conducting sphere(where r>R), E=Q/ (4pi Epsilon naught r^2) (2.)Electric Field of Point Charge, E= kQ/r^2 3. The attempt at a solution OK, so what I did was try to the sum of the electric fields first from the point charge in the center using equation (2.) and then I added that to the electric field outside the sphere to the point using equation (1.) and my Q as q2. Doing this I get -1774598 N/C when the answer should be -6703699 N/C. I am not very good at E&M so I would appreciate all help.
