Retreiving potential from Poisson's equation

  1. Oct 11, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    What's the best way to retrieve V from Poisson's equation?

    [tex]\nabla[/tex][tex]^{2}[/tex] V = -[tex]\frac{1}{\epsilon_o}\rho[/tex]

    2. Relevant equations

    [tex]\nabla[/tex][tex]^{2}[/tex] V = -[tex]\frac{1}{\epsilon_o}\rho[/tex]

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Integrated twice

    Besides direct integration I'd suggest you look at the greens function for the Poisson equation.

    Thank you for the reply. But we have not done Green's function for Poisson equation yet. Any other clue?
