My professor said this problem is straightforward in spherical coordinates,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex] \int_{|\vec{r_1}|\leq a } \int_{|\vec{r_2}|\leq a } \frac{1}{|\vec{r_1}-\vec{r_2}|} d^3 r_2d^3r_1[/tex]

i set up the integral in spherical coordinate and found it really ugly...
