(b) To find the potential in the region r 1 < r < r 2 , first use Gauss’s law to find an expression for the electric field, then integrate along a radial path from r 2 to r . The Gaussian surface is a sphere of radius r , concentric with the shell. The field is radial and therefore normal to the surface. Its magnitude is uniform over the surface, so the flux through the surface is Φ = 4 π r 2 E . The volume of the shell is 43 2 3 1 3 π bg c h rr , so the charge density is ρ = 3 4 2 3 1 3 Q π c h , and the charge enclosed by the Gaussian surface is qr r Q = F H G I K J −= F H G I K J 4 3 3 1 3 3 1 3 2 3 1 3 π c h .
