Enginering Electromagnetics help

In summary, we have a charge density given by pv=10e^-3r{uC/m^3}, where r is measured in meters. We need to find the total charge Q contained in a sphere centered at the origin with a radius of meters. The formula for the volume of a sphere is 4/3πr^3. After integrating, we get an answer of 8.73 microCoulombs, which is the correct answer.

Yeah, I figured out that part i just have trouble integrating the problem. I get some huge number when I do that. But I do appreciate you showing me that but, if you could can you show me how its worked out. The answer is 8.73microCoulombs. Thanks again
