    Please see the attached file.
    A spherical shell of radius R centered at the origin has a surface charge density (file attached).
    1. Setup the Coulomb integral for the electric potential V(z) for any point on the z axis. Find the function.
    2. Evaluate V(z) at the origin (z=0)

    Note: you may need to look up the integral.
