Electric field between electrodes of half-filled spherical capacitor

  1. Nov 4, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Half the space between two concentric electrodes of a spherical capacitor is filled with uniform isotropic dielectric with permittivity ε. The charge of the capacitor is q. Find the magnitude of electric field strength between the electrodes as a function of distance r from center of electrode.

    Answer → E = q/2∏εo(ε + 1)r2

    2. Relevant equations

    V1 - V2 = -∫E.ds

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I tried to find the potential diference between electrod using above equation but its not working
