 Homework Statement:
 A charge Q is uniformly distributed on a thin spherical shell. If a point charge is brought close to the shell, will the field at the centre change? Does your answer depend on whether the shell is conducting or not?
 Relevant Equations:

Gauss Law: Surface Integral of E*dA = q(enclosed)/Eplison
*  dot product
My approach is thus: the shell will have induced charges if it's conducting resulting in E at the centre of shell(though flux at centre will be 0). For non conducting spheres there can be no induction only polarization of dipoles, therefore the E field at centre will remain 0. Is my approach correct?
