**charge q**'. The distance between them is y — y' = y(l — a2/y2). Hence ...Page 31

2.3 Point Charge in the Presence of a Charged, Insulated, Conducting Sphere In

the previous section we considered the problem of a point

grounded sphere and saw that a surface-charge density was induced on the

sphere.
