Abstract: This paper gives an integral equation, the solution of which is a solution of a classical problem in potential theory: Given a region with boundary $ \mathcal{B}$, what distribution of charge on $ \mathcal{B}$ will produce a potential having specified values on $ \mathcal{B}$? The paper also indicates briefly how the integral equation is useful in simplifying certain proofs and extending certain theorems in potential theory.
