# Problem: Two concentric, spherical conducting shells have radii r1 and r2 and charge Q1 and Q2, as shown below.Let r be the distance from the center of the sphere.Finda) from the electric field obtained, determine the electric potential in the region r&gt;r2 and r2&gt;r&gt;r1.

###### FREE Expert Solution

The electric potential due to charge, q is:

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

For r > r2

Let's take the net charge at the center of the concentric shells to be Q1 + Q2
