electric potential is higher in a hollow metallic sphere or in a solid metallic sperical shell?

Expert Answer:

Electric potential in a hollow metallic sphere = kQ/R (for r>R) and kQ/r (for r
 
Now, when you are talking about solid metallic spherical shell, are you talking about a completely solid sphere? If yes, then
 
For solid sphere, V = kQ/2R (3-r^2/R^2) (for rR)
 
So, for r>R, the potential is same but for for r
