The electric field inside a hollow, uniformly charged sphere is zero. Does this imply that the potential is zero inside the sphere? Explain.

Welcome to PhysicsForums!

While you can often find help and advice on this forum, you won't find homework solutions. We'll help you help yourself, but you need to show your work / thinking on homework problems.

As a hint, what is the electric field (inside the shell, and outside), and what is the potential at infinity? With these in mind, how might you approach the potential?
