The inner radius of a spherical shell is 14.6 cm, and the outer radius is 15.0 cm. The shell carries a charge of 5.85 × 10-8 C, distributed uniformly though its volume. Sketch, for your own benefit, the graph of the potential for all values of r (the radial distance from the center of the shell).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What is the potential at the center of the shell (r=0)?

What is the potential at the inner radius?

What is the potential at the outer radius? - I solved this using V = kQ/r. This part makes sense to me.

The first two questions should have the same answer I know. I'm not sure how to solve for them, since I know I can't use the same equation that I did for the outer ring. Is there a way without full out integrating?
