Let .

Find potential function for .

We know , so

Differentiating wrt , .

So we have + constant.

The answers then simply state that the constant is just zero, not quite sure how they get to this?

Thanks in advance

Thanks for the last two posts. You're both right, typos due to typing far too quickly lol.

Cheers for spotting those :)
