# Electric field at origin

I know that the electric field intensity at the origin of a uniformly charged sphere is 0.

Question: Does this mean that the electric field intensity of a non-uniformly charged sphere at the origin is 0 as well? I have tried this and got 0 as a result, am I correct?

Edit:

Noticed this changes the question a lot.

$\rho_{v} = \alpha r$ , where $\alpha$ is constant

$a<r<b$ , $0<\theta <\pi$ , $0<\phi <2\pi$

• Trying to understand your edit: do you mean that spherical symmetry is preserved but each "shell" of the sphere has a different charge density? – Floris Jun 6 '17 at 16:18
