Statement of a problem № 42191


Some planetary scientists have suggested that the planet Mars has an electric field somewhat similar to that of the earth, producing a net electric flux of 3.63 X 1016 N • m2/C at the planet s surface. Calculate: (a) The total electric charge on the planet; (b) The electric field at the planet s surface (refer to the astronomical data inside the back cover); (c) The charge density on Mars, assuming all the charge is uniformly distributed over the planet s surface.
