Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

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) = [tex]\int [/tex] (-F(r))= [tex]\int [/tex] (-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..
