Statement of a problem № 42210


A solid sphere of radius R has a uniform charge density 7 and total charge Q. Derive an expression for its total electric potential energy. (Suggestion: imagine that the sphere is constructed by adding successive layers of concentric shells of charge dq = (4/r 2 dr) 7 and use dU = V dq.)
