(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A capacitor is formed of two concentric spherical conducting shells of radii r1 and r3. The space between the shells is filled from r1 to r2 with a dielectric of relative permittivity [tex]\epsilon[/tex]_{r1}and from r2 to r3 with a dielectric of relative permittivity [tex]\epsilon[/tex]_{r2}. Derive an expression for the capacitance of this capacitor.

2. Relevant equations

C = Q/V

3. The attempt at a solution

I know that the dielectric reduces theE. But i seriously do not know where to start from.
