(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A conducting sphere of radius a, at potential V0, is surrounded by a thin concentric spherical shell of radius b over which someone has glued a surface charge. sigma = kcos(theta) where k is a constant

i know V(r, theta) and induced surface charge on the conductor

2. Relevant equations

Q = integral (sigma) da

3. The attempt at a solution

trying to use equation 1 but i'm not sure first off the limits on r for each
