Gauss`s law

Nagendra chowdary asked : –

“A circular ring of radius r made of a non conducting material is placed with its axis is parallel to a uniform electric field if the ring rotated by 180 degrees Does the flux changes? A Q charge is uniformly distributed on a thin spherical shell If a point charge is brought near it what is the field at the center?Is u r answer depends on whether it is conducting or non conducting?”

A Numerical from electrostatics

Treat the sphere as a solid non-conducting sphere of radius R=6000 km with uniform charge Q=4000 C. The sphere has a conducting spherical shell. The shell has inner radius r1= 6005 km, outer radius r2= 6010 km and zero net charge. Assume gravity is negligible for all parts of this problem.
a) How much charge is on the inner and outer surfaces of the shell layer?
b) What is the potential difference deltaV between the base of the shell and the sphere?
