Finding Density of planet

  1. Apr 17, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I attached the problem because it's easier

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    The main problem I have with this problem is trying to find the density as a function of radius.
    I have been thinking for hours but can't come up with anything.

    What I have for the n=0 question:
    for clarity, I'm just using x

    θ''+(2/x)θ' +1 = 0

    is my equation and I'm using mathematica to numerically solve it.

    Any ideas?
