Statement of a problem № 41853


Suppose the surface charge density over a sphere of radius R depends on a polar angle θ as σ = σ0 cos θ, where σ0 is a positive constant. Show that such a charge distribution can be represented as a result of a small relative shift of two uniformly charged balls of radius R whose charges are equal in magnitude and opposite in sign. Resorting to this representation, find the electric field strength vector inside the given sphere.
