Q

# How Gravitational field Intensity due to spherical shell of radius R varies with the distance r from its center (For r > R) ??

Views

As shown in the below figure

If Gravitational field Intensity due to spherical shell= I

then

•                Outside the surface   I.e $r>R$

$I= \frac{GM}{r^{2}}$

Where

$R\rightarrow$ Radius of shell

$r\rightarrow$ Position of Pt.

$M\rightarrow$ Mass of spherical shell
