The Monte Carlo Methods have been applied with great success to the solution of electromagnetic problems in Cartesian and cylindrical coordinates systems, but have not been widely used in tspherical coordinates system. In this paper, we briefly show the use of a Fixed Random Walk Monte Carlo Method to compute potential distribution in a conducting spherical shell. The results obtained perfectly agreed with those obtained using explicit finite difference method. Also, the approach adopted to overcome singularities encountered in the co-latitude coordinates of the spherical system was highlighted.
