 Homework Statement:

There is given a spherical shell with an inner radius of a and an outer radius of b, and there is a point charge +Q in the center. The volume charge density of the charge in the shell is A/r where A is some constant.
Find A if the electric field inside the shell is constant.
 Relevant Equations:
 Gauss' law
Hi, been a while since I last asked here something.
I am restudying electrostatics right now, and I am facing difficulties in the following question:
My attempt:
I tried to use Gauss' law, what I got is the equation in the capture but that doesn't lead me anywhere as I am unable to find a value that will result in a constant field inside the shell. What am I doing wrong?
Of course that the equation is for a<r<b
