1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

This question refers to Griffths E and M book.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

part a was easy.

For part b, I am trying to calculate V(r) using equation 4.13 and I am facing an absurdly difficult integration which means I must be doing something wrong.

[tex]V(\vec{r}) = \frac{1}{4 \pi \epsilon_0}\left(\int_0^{2\pi} \int_p^{\pi}\frac{\sigma_b}{|\vec{r}-\vec{r'}|}R^2 \sin \theta' d\theta' d\phi' + \int_0^{2\pi} \int_0^{\pi} \int_0^R \frac{\rho_b}{|\vec{r}-\vec{r'}|}r'^2 \sin \theta' dr' d\theta' d\phi' \right)

[/tex]

It is those denominators that are going to kill me!
