-Outside the ball, the electric field exists as if the ball were a point charge! +Outside the ball, the electric field exists as if the ball were a point charge! It is also important to note that the relationships seen in our above equations also agree with what we already know about insulating spheres of charge.

 We repeat the process above for the case that the ball is a conductor. Notice that much of the reasoning is the exact same. We still have spherical symmetry, and we choose the same Gaussian surface. It is pictured below for both $r<R$ and $r>R$. We repeat the process above for the case that the ball is a conductor. Notice that much of the reasoning is the exact same.
