1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A conducting sphere with radius R is charged to voltage V0 (relative to a point an infinite distance from the sphere where the potential is zero). What is the surface charge density σ? Express your answer in terms of the given quantities and ϵ0. 2. Relevant equations Electric field on a sphere, E=(1/4πϵ0)*(Q/r^2) Surface charge density: σ=Q/A, where Q is the charge and A is the area of the surface. A for a sphere: A=4πr^2 3. The attempt at a solution I need to find σ and I have Q in two of the equations I replaced A with the area of a sphere, so I get σ=Q/4πr^2 Then I solved for Q from this, so I have Q=σ4πr^2, now I substitute this into the first equation and solve for σ, so now I have, E=(1/4πϵ0r^2)*(σ4[I]πr^2/r^2), this gives me E*[I]ϵ[/I]0, [/I]but this is not the correct answers. Does E=V0?
