# What is the electric potential at a point inside a charged spherical cell?

Contents

Inside the sphere, the field is zero, therefore, no work needs to be done to move the charge inside the sphere and, therefore, the potential there does not change.

## What is the electric field and electric potential inside a charged spherical cell?

As we know that the electric field intensity inside the hollow spherical charged conductor is zero. Hence, the work done in moving a point charge inside the hollow spherical conductor is also zero. This implies that the potential difference between any two points inside or on the surface of the conductor is zero.

## What is the electric potential inside a charged spherical conductor?

The electric potential inside a charged spherical conductor of radius R is given by V = ke Q/R, and the potential outside is given by V = ke Q/r. Using Er = -dv/dr, derive the electric field inside and outside this charge distribution.

## What is the electric potential inside the shell?

If you’re talking about a uniform shell of charge (with no other charge inside), the electric field inside will be zero: this follows from Gauss’s Law. However the potential inside need not be zero: it will be a constant.

## Is electric potential zero when electric field is zero?

Yes, electric potential can be zero at a point even when the electric field is not zero at that point. Considering the case of the electric dipole will help us understand this concept.

## Which of the following is correct the electric field at a point is?

Electric field at a point is continuous if there is no charge at that point. And the field is discontinuous if there is charge at that point. So both options (b) and (c) are correct.

## What is the electric potential due to a uniformly charged spherical shell at a point inside the shell?

Since the charge q is distributed on the surface of the spherical shell, there will be no charge enclosed by the spherical Gaussian surface i.e. = 0. Hence, there is no electric field inside a uniformly charged spherical shell.

## What is the unit of electric intensity?

Joule/newton. Hint: The unit of electric field intensity can be found by using the units of force and charge, as electric field intensity is the force per unit coulomb. Mathematically, E=Fq, where E is electric field intensity, F is the force exerted on charge and q is charge.

## What will be the value of electric field at the Centre of the electric dipole?

Therefore, electrical field at point p is the question mark. Since the total distance between the charges is d and this point is the center of the dipole, therefore this distance will be equal to d over 2.
