HA 10, problem 3c
« on: November 22, 2016, 01:15:06 PM »
Does 3c want us to go through steps a and b in spherical coordinates, or just write u as a function of r, theta, and phi?

I think you can just plug in $x=\rho \sin(\phi)\cos(\theta)$, etc and the resulting $u$ will automatically satisfy the laplacian in spherical coordinate.
