    1) Charge is placed on the surface of a 2.7cm radius isolated conducting sphere. The surface density charge is uniform and has the value 6.9*10^-6C/m^2. The total charge on the sphere is:

    2) A spherical shell has an inner radius of 3.7 cm and an outer radius of 4.5cm. If charge is distributed uniformally throughout the shell with a volume density of 6.1*10^-4C/m^3 the total charge is:

    3) A cylinder has a radius of 2.1 cm and a length of 8.8cm. Total charge 6.1*10^-7C is distributed uniformally throughout. The volume charge density is:

    1) Charge is placed on the surface of a 2.7cm radius isolated conducting sphere. The surface density charge is uniform and has the value 6.9*10^-6C/m^2. The total charge on the sphere is:

    So the question is what is the surface area of the sphere that the charge resides upon - call this A.
    Then the total charge is the surface charge density x A(meters^2):
    The surface of a sphere has ...
