Abstract: We provide a sufficient condition for the existence of a positive solution to

$\displaystyle -\Delta u+V(\vert x\vert) u=u^p \quad \hbox { in } B_1, $

when $ p$ is large enough. Here $ B_1$ is the unit ball of $ \mathbb{R}^n$, $ n\ge 2$, and we deal with both Neumann and Dirichlet homogeneous boundary conditions. The solution turns out to be a constrained minimum of the associated energy functional. As an application we show that in case $ V(\vert x\vert)\geq 0$, $ V\not \equiv 0$ is smooth and $ p$ is sufficiently large, and the Neumann problem always admits a solution.
