Hello Mike, For problem 2 on page 284…

Hello Mike,
For problem 2 on page 284 (relating to “Working in Three Dimensions”), I had difficulty answering the question, because I don’t know what the inner radius of a sphere and how that differs from the outer radius of a sphere. Since I’m not able to find anything on the Internet that talks about this, could you please explain the difference to me?
And could you then tie it back to how the entire inner/outer radius thing is relevant to the question at hand (#2 on page 284)?
