Superposition of Spherical Charge Distributions
1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
2. Relevant equations
3. The attempt at a solution
So I know that I should use the superposition principle, and treat it as 2 superimposed spheres of opposite charge densities. I can use Gauss's law to find the electric field of each. However I am having a little trouble figuring out how to take into account the fact that the spheres are not concentric. I also don't know whether to use the electric field inside or outside the spheres.

What do you get for the individual fields fields, in vector form, inside the spheres?
