The electric potential due to charge, q is:

$\overline{){\mathbf{V}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{k}\mathbf{q}}{\mathbf{r}}}$

__For r > r _{2} __

Let's take the net charge at the center of the concentric shells to be Q_{1} + Q_{2}

Two concentric, spherical conducting shells have radii r_{1} and r_{2} and charge Q_{1} and Q_{2}, as shown below.

Let r be the distance from the center of the sphere.

Find

a) from the electric field obtained, determine the electric potential in the region r>r_{2} and r_{2}>r>r_{1}.
