# Laplace's Equation

## Homework Statement

$\frac{1}{s} \frac{\partial }{\partial s} (\{s} \frac{\partial V}{\partial s}) + \frac{1}{s^2} \cdot \frac{\partial^2 V}{\partial \phi^2}$

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

## The Attempt at a Solution

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