Unformatted text preview: F . (iii) Explain why the scalar potential must satisfy Laplaces equation, and verify that your scalar potential does so. [5+5+5=15 pts.] 3. Prove that solutions to Laplaces equation 2 f = 0 in a compact volume V are uniquely determined the values of f on the closed boundary surface V . [5 pts.] ( Hint : Suppose two solutions f 1 and f 2 agree on V . Consider the function g = f 2f 1 , and remember what you know about maxima and minima of harmonic functions.) 4.
