Very difficult series circuit question

  1. Mar 1, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data


    so basically there is a total of 2008 identical resistors and 2009 identical charged spheres. The spheres have a total charge of Q. I’m trying to find out what the radius of one of these spheres is.

    2. Relevant equations

    integral (E dot A) = (sum of all q's)/(Eo)

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Now I know i have to use a combination of Gauss's law and series circuits but i'm not actually sure where to begin. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
