this is extremely easy. simply assume a spherical shell at a distance x from the centre with incremental width of dx. now given that density= k/x.
so, dm= (k/x)*dv
but dv= 4pix^2dx
so dm= (k/x)*4pix^2dx= 4kpixdx
now simply integrate both sides
M= 4kpix^2/2 from 0 to R
or M= 2kpiR^2
kindly approve :)
