Electric Field Due To A Hemisphere

Electricity and Magnetism Level 2

Consider a positively charged, non-conducting hemispherical shell, placed such that its center is at origin and its curved surface is given by the equation:- \[x^2+y^2+z^2=9, z\ge 0\]

What will the direction of electric field be at a point given by position vector \(-2\hat i\)

  1. \(\hat k\)
  2. \(-\hat k\)
  3. \(\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}}\hat i - \frac{1}{\sqrt{2}}\hat k\)
  4. \(\frac{2}{\sqrt{5}}\hat i - \frac{1}{\sqrt{5}}\hat k\)
