Dust cloud potential problem

In this problem we compute the potential of an isolated, spherical mass with constant density. The analytic solution is spherically symmetric and is quadratic in radius inside the sphere, 1/r outside the sphere. The coordinate system is arranged so that G=1.


3D Cartesian.

radius = 1; cloudmass = 1
