Capacitance of a system

  1. Feb 25, 2010 #1
    Would the capacitance of the system be the same if we had one spherical shell around another (radii a and b) , versus a solid sphere of radius a surrounded by shell of radius b? I mean...if the charge we add to the solid sphere distributes itself completely on the surface, isn't the inner solid sphere gonna act exactly like a thin shell with the radius of the sphere?

    Yes it is.

    Thank you :) And, is there another way to calculate the capacitance of such a system other than C=Q/V ?
