Solution of laplace eqn in cylindrical coordinate

  1. Oct 8, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    A infinite long hollow cylinder has a narrow lengthwise cut and the potential on the cylinder is given by v(r,θ) = vo(θ/(2*pi))

    2. Relevant equations

    V(s,theta) = Ao + [itex]Ʃ (n AnSnSin nθ + BnSn Cos nθ) [/itex]

    3. The attempt at a solution

    boundary condition V(r,0)= 0 gives Ao = -ƩAnrn
    boundary condition V(r, 2∏) = Vo,

    I was trying to substitute the value of Ao from the first condition, but it gives some crazy values. need help to proceed forward from this step.
