1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Given a spherical shell of radius R and the surface charge density ( being the angle from the top of the sphere and being a constant) find the electric potential and the electric field inside and outside the sphere. Check that both the potential is continuous inside and outside the sphere and that inside and out. I made this little diagram to illustrate. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I can't even understand this problem. I feel like the point of interest shown in the diagram should be on the shell so that can return a meaningful value, but I need to find the potential and electric field everywhere, so it can't be on the sphere.
