A metallic sphere conducts electricity, which means surplus electrons
are free to move around. According to Coulomb's law,
they repel each other with a force that is proportional to the square of the
inverse of the distance separating them. The problem is to determine an
equilibrium distribution for a collection of *n* surplus electrons.
