Lienard Wienchert Potentials My text asks me to obtain the Lienard-Wiechert Potentials. The potentials are quoted as: $\displaystyle \phi= \left[\frac q {r(1+u_r/c)}\right]_{ret}$ and $\displaystyle \underline w= \left[\frac {q \underline u} {r(1+u_r/c)}\right]_{ret}$ This seems wrong to me, I get the following $\displaystyle \underline w= \left[\frac {q \underline u/c} {r(1+u_r/c)}\right]_{ret}$ Is my text incorrect?
