Oh no, I see why it should be 0.5. Give me a second to change my initial thread.

On another note, this is the correct method for finding a scalar potential isn't it? I keep thinking that "scalar" implies that I should be finding a number of some sort. - May 6th 2009, 01:17 PMNonCommAlg

There's your 800th thanks!!

Thanks very much, I just needed someone to tell me I was doing them correctly (even if my integration was a bit sloppy).
