A dielectric sphere with dielectric constant K of radius R has a free charge density r distributed uniformly throughout the volume.

(a) What is the electrostatic potential at the center of the sphere, relative to infinity?

(b) How much energy is required to establish this configuration, starting with the charge dispersed at infinity?
