I am beyond lost with the question, so any help would be greatly appreciated.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Consider a solid, rigid spherical shell with a thickness of 100 m and a density of 3900 kg/m^3. The sphere is centered around the sun so that its inner surface is at a distance of 1.5×1011 m from the center of the sun. What is the net force that the sun would exert on such a Dyson sphere were it to get displaced off-center by some small amount?

Now this is one question which i have no idea how to approach. Any hints would be great.

Thank you
