Homework Statement


Two isolated, concentric, conducting spherical shells have radii R1 = 0.510 m and R2 = 1.10 m, uniform charges q1 = +1.90 μC and q2 = +2.50 μC, and negligible thicknesses. What is the magnitude of the electric field E at radial distance (a)r = 4.50 m, (b)r = 0.840 m, and (c)r = 0.130 m? With V = 0 at infinity, what is V (in V) at (d)r = 4.50 m, (e)r = 1.10 m, (f)r = 0.840 m, (g)r = 0.510 m, (h)r = 0.130 m, and (i)r = 0?


Homework Equations





The Attempt at a Solution


Wouldn't it just be 0 because there is no net charge inside the shell?
