A hollow metal sphere of radius 5 cm is charged such that the potential on its surface is 10 V. What is the potential at the centre of the sphere?

Answer.

In the case of a hollow metal sphere, the electric field inside the shell is zero. This means that the potential inside the shell is constant. Therefore the pot...

In a region of constant potential
(a) the electric field is uniform
(b) the electric field is zero
(c) there can be no charge inside the region.
(d) the electric field shall necessarily change if a charge is placed
outside the region.

Options (B) and (C). In the region of constant electric potential, electric field is zero so there is no charge inside the region.

A parallel plate capacitor is charged by a battery, which is then disconnected. A dielectric slab is then inserted in the space between the plates. Explain what changes, if any, occur in the values of:

(i) capacitance

(ii) potential difference between the plates

(iii) electric field between the plates

(iv) the energy stored in the capacitor .

(i) The capacitance increases as the dielectric constant K > 1. 

(ii) Potential difference V = Q/C.  As C increases and Q remains the same since the battery is disconnected, the p.d...
