A shell surrounds a point charge of +5 nC in (a) and (b) to the right
A shell surrounds a point charge of +5 nC in (a) and (b) to the right. Which shell surface has a larger Electric flux? Shell in (a) Shell in (b) They are the same!

Shell in (a) Shell in (b) They are the same!
A shell surrounds a point charge of +5 nC in (a) and (b) to the right. If you are inside the shell measuring the strength of the electric field, for which scenario will you record the stronger electric field strength? Shell in (a) Shell in (b) They are the same!

Shell in (a) Shell in (b) They are the same!
A shell surrounds a point charge of +5 nC in (a) and (b) to the right. If you are standing on the surface of the shell measuring the strength of the electric field, for which scenario will you record the stronger electric field strength? Shell in (a) Shell in (b) They are the same!

In an electrostatic situation, the electric field at every point within the conductor
is constant, but not necessarily zero. is zero. fluctuates based on the motion of charged particles on the surface of the conductor.

If an isolated positive charge is placed in the cavity of a conductor with no net charge, the charge on the outer surface of the conductor becomes positively charged becomes negatively charged Stays neutral

If an isolated positive charge is placed in the cavity of a conductor with no net charge, the charge on the inner surface of the conductor becomes positively charged becomes negatively charged Stays neutral

The outer surface of a conductor with a hollow cavity in it has a positive net charge of + 10 nC on it. What should the be the charge of a particle inserted into the cavity be to make the charge of the outer surface of the conductor zero. -10 nC +10 nC ‘tis impossible, ya cannot break the laws of physics man!

A neutral conductor completely encloses a hole inside of it
A neutral conductor completely encloses a hole inside of it. You observe that the outer surface of this conductor carries a charge of -5 nC. Can you conclude that there is a charge inside the hole? Yeppers. Nopers. Not enough info!
