## Homework Statement

"You have a hollow conducting sphere with inner radius R1 and outer Radius R2. You place a point charge (-q) at the center of the sphere. What is the charge/unit area on the inner radius? On the outer radius?"

## Homework Equations

gauss's law

## The Attempt at a Solution

I used gauss's law and found the electric field of the charge, but I read through the text book and through my notes and I can't seem to find anything on finding the "charge/unit area" on the hollow sphere. I understand how to use Gauss' law, but I just don't understand how I can find this charge...

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thank!
