    Electrostatics: Capacitance of a spherical capacitor.

    This content was COPIED from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

    A spherical capacitor is formed from two concentric, spherical conducting shells separated by vacuum. The inner sphere has radius 15.0 cm, and the capacitance is 116 pF.

    1.) What is the radius of the outer sphere?

    2.) If the potential difference between the two spheres is 220 V, what is the magnitude of charge on each sphere?
