A nonconducting SPHERICAL SHELL of inner radius R1 and outer radius R2 has a uniform volume charge density p. Find the total charge on the shell

2. Relevant equations

Q=pV=p(4/3)*pi*(R2^3-R1^3) << That's what I got

the book had Q=pV=p(4/3)*pi*(r^3-R1^3) <<how can that be correct if you're finding the total charge the shell, not from R1 to r?
