**Abstract:**

*The mean spherical approximation for the internal energy U of the classical one-component plasma is solved exactly in the limit γ ≫ 1, where γ is the usual Coulomb coupling parameter. The result {Mathematical expression} is consistent with DeWitt's empirical analysis of the mean spherical approximation. © 1979 Plenum Publishing Corporation.*
