# two concentric metallic spherical shells of radii R and 2R are given charges Q1 and Q2 respectively .the surface charge densities on the outer surfaces of the shells are equal .determine the ratio Q1:Q2

Surface Charge density ,σ = charge / surface area
Surface Charge density of the metallic shell of radius R and charge Q1 is
σ1 = Q1/4πR2
Similarly, Surface Charge density of the metallic shell of radius 2R and charge Q2,
σ2 = Q2/4π(2R)2

Given,   σ1  = σ2
