Using integration calculate the total charge on the sphere

radius R

Volume charge density at the surface of the sphere p0

p = p0r/R

I started with dq = 4*pi*r^2*dr*(p0r/R)

but i am not sure how to integrate (in terms of what variable I would assume r=0 to r=R) but i am not sure i set up the question right
