# Central potential

 P: 3 Hello, I am trying to compute the potential for a central force of the form: F(r) = f(r)r where r=|r| Using the conservative force information, equation1 comes for potential V(r): equation1: V(r) = $$\int$$ (-F(r))= $$\int$$ (-f(r) r) In wikipedia it is stated that this integral is bounded from |r| to infinity. However I could not understand the reason. Could someone help me? Thanks..
