Unformatted text preview: r R . This agrees with the Rutherford field expression shown in exercise 37 (in the textbook). We note that he has designed his voltage expression to be zero at r = R . Since the zero point for the voltage of this system (in an otherwise empty space) is arbitrary, then choosing V = 0 at r = R is certainly permissible....
