When q is just outside the surface of the sphere, the image charge is equal and

opposite in magnitude and lies just beneath the surface. Now that the image

charge has been found, we can return to the original problem of a

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.
