. A spherical portion has been removed from a solid sphere having a charge


distributeduniformly in its volume as shown in the figure. The electric field inside the emptiedspace is :

A: zero everywhere

B: non - zero and uniform

C: non - uniform

D: zero only at its center

Best Answer

Explanation:

From the image, consider a point P inside the cavity and let ρ be the charge density.

Then, after applying superposition principle the net electric field at point P will be: 

consider a point

Final answer:

The electric field inside the emptiedspace is non-zero and uniform within the cavity. 

Therefore, Option “B” is correct.
