Laplace's equation written in plane polar coordinates is
I need to find the most general solution which is a function of only.
Can anyone see what this would be?
If T is a function of r only, then so the equation becomes the ordinary differential equation . Let and we have which is a separable first order differential equation. . Can you finish it from there?
