Foundations of Physics 9 (3-4):261-269 (1979)

A long-range potential is one whose range, the distance of effective influence, is unbounded or infinite. In this paper we show, using a definition of the range of a potential and certain other theoretical considerations, that the only long-range potential isV(r)=c/r, wherec is a constant
