How can we calculate potential due to distribution of masses with spherical symmetry?

Report as

For you to calculate the potential due to distribution of masses with spherical symmetry, you will have to use the gravitational potential. The gravitational potential (V) is the potential energy (U) per unit mass. This can be expressed as U = mV. You can get more steps at http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/gpot.html or at http://farside.ph.utexas.edu/teaching/336k/Newtonhtml/node107.html.
