Homework Statement



[itex]\frac{1}{s} \frac{\partial }{\partial s} (\{s} \frac{\partial V}{\partial s}) + \frac{1}{s^2} \cdot \frac{\partial^2 V}{\partial \phi^2}[/itex]

When you do separation of variables what happens to the [itex]\frac{1}{s}[/itex] and the [itex]\frac{1}{s^2}[/itex] after you divide through by [itex]\Phi [/itex] and S to come up with a solution

Just multiply the entire equation by [itex]s^2[/itex] in order to obtain terms that involve only [itex]s[/itex] or only [itex]\phi[/itex]
