Dust charge and potential on static spherical dust grains located in an argon rf discharge under typical laboratory experiment conditions have been computed using a three-dimensional Particle-Particle-Particle-Mesh (P 3 M ) code. Elastic and inelastic collisions have been included in the current model to obtain realistic rf discharge plasma conditions. Dust charge, potential and poten-
