Homework Help: Laplace equation in a unit ball

  1. Apr 4, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    [PLAIN]http://img641.imageshack.us/img641/9458/93563522.jpg [Broken]

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I think the reason I can't solve this problem is possibly I failed to consider some important property of the laplace equation. I just don't have a club where to start. Here's my attempt:

    "u" is clearly harmonic inside the unit ball. It seems to me that the relationship to be proved suggests a linear interpolation scheme can be used to determine any point inside the ball, which also suggests the divergent everywhere inside the ball is same??? I'm totally confused from here on.
