A solid conducting sphere of radius a has a net positive charge 2Q. A conducting spherical shell of inner radius b and outer radius c is concentric with the solid sphere and has a net charge –Q. The surface charge density on the inner and outer surfaces of the spherical shell will be (1) $-\frac{2Q}{4\pi {b}^{2}},\frac{Q}{4\pi {c}^{2}}$

(2) $-\frac{Q}{4\pi {b}^{2}},\frac{Q}{4\pi {c}^{2}}$

(3) $0,\frac{Q}{4\pi {c}^{2}}$

(4) None of the above
