**1. Homework Statement**

A hollow metal sphere has 7cm and 9cm inner and outer radii, respectively. The surface charge density on the inside surface is - 300nC/m^2</units> . The surface charge density on the exterior surface is + 300nC/m^2</units> .

What is the strength of the Electric Field at a point 4cm from the center.

**2. Homework Equations**

∫EXda= Qin/εo

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

I'm pretty lost on how to solve this question. I initially tried to follow steps my prof did on a previous, similar example, but he was solving for charge while this is clearly asking for Electric Field strength.

I thought perhaps I could integrate to get E.A= Qin/εo and then rearrange for E= Qin/(Axεo) and then solve for E but I got a ridiculous number. Any ideas?
