    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Here is the question given:


    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    So i set p as x^2 + y^2 + z^2

    so p lies in between b and a.

    But how do i find the restrictions on the two angles, theta and phi?

    Hopefully you mean [itex]\rho=\sqrt{x^2+y^2+z^2}[/itex]. Draw a picture. What do [itex]\phi\hbox{ and }\theta[/itex] usually range through for spheres?
