We consider the charge in the sphere to be positive because if it is negative then zero velocity will be needed by the particle to reach the opposite end.


Mass of the projectile = M

Radius = R

Let charge on the sphere = Q

Charge of the projectile = 1 C

The electric field inside the non-conducting charged sphere at a distance r from the center is given by
