Hello(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i have a problem with spherical coordinates however i understand partial differentials.

Basically a thin spherical layer of radius R is uniformly charged with surface charge density. Show by Calculating the electrostatic potential (x,y,z) produced by the layer that electrostatic potential is unifrom anywhere inside the sphere.Use spherical coordiantes.It also says a differential area da=R^2sin()d()d(/) can be obtained from the volume dv=R^2 sin()Rd()d(/)=dAdR

()=theta

(/)=phi

I know how to calculate the moment of inertia using spherical coordinates however i dont know how to start off the question. Am i suppose to calculate the are or the volume and what equation do i put into the triple integral.Very confusing?
