Fourier transform of 1/r

  1. Sep 24, 2011 #1

    What is the Fourier transform of 1/r?
    Is it proportional to 1/(k^2) ?

    How do you prove this?

    Do you mean this formula (which I found by Googling for "Fourier transform 1/r")?

    I had found this....I wanted the 3D fourier transform...not the 2D one...
