Q.A spherical shell of radius R = 1.5cm has a charge q = 20μC uniformly distributed over it. The force exerted by one half over the other half is

(a) zero

(b) 10^{-2} N

(c) 500 N

(d) 2000 N

Sol: E= σ/2ℇ_{0} , Pressure P = σ^{2}/2ℇ_{0}

Force F = P × πR^{2}

= σ^{2}/2ℇ_{0} × πR^{2}

= (q /4 πR^{2} )^{2} πR^{2}/2ℇ_{0}
