can someone explain how the potential inside a sphere is constant, in terms of using coulomb's law and knowledge of charge in an electric field, without directly invoking gauss's law or the partial derivative for rate of change in potential.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

the graphs depicting potential around a sphere show (symmetrical) inverse-distance relationship rising to a maximum value of potental at the surface of the sphere, then the line flattens to show constant value right across one side of sphere to the other passing through the centre of sphere. my question is how to explain the value of potential is constant inside the sphere.
