Constructing the central potential from the orbit

  1. Dec 2, 2005 #1
    Hi,

    A particle of mass M is moving in an uknown central potential. Its orbit is a circle of raduis R, that passes through the origin. I need to reconstruct the potential from this information.

    Thanks,
    Chen

    Chen, I already know how to do this sum. It is you who posted asking for help.
    The forum rules are that you should show your work if you require help. Besides, I wanted to know how far you had gone along. It's easier to provide hints that way.
    So, I feel the way I answered was perfectly right.
