Rectangular Domain ()[edit | edit source]

Disc of radius c

For a disk with a radius of "c", let the polar coordinates be , and

, boundary condition.

continuity of potential.

continuity of derivative.

[edit | edit source]

The solution as a product of two independent functions. By substitution into the above PDE we have:


The constant may be greater than , equal to or less than zero.

Use the continuity conditions and try to determine something more about A, B and λ.
thus and

Either or
Before choosing, apply the second boundary condition:

The continuity of the derivative provides a second condition:

Either or
If either A or B are zero then also must hold. So all we need is which implies . Remember
