Our instructor showed us in class that by applying brute force it is possible to give a value to the gravitational intensity on the surface of a thin spherical shell.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

My question is whether it is ethical to do this.After all,the limits at r=R should not exist because,inside the sphere it is 0 and outside the sphere it has got a finite value.Therefore the LHL and RHL do not match.Please confirm.
