We calculate the depletion potential between two hard spheres of radii Rs and that between one hard sphere and a planar hard wall in a sea of hard rigid spherocylindrical rods of length L and radius Rr. Unlike earlier studies our approach takes into account the true geometry of the problem and gives, to first order in the rod density, the exact depletion potential for all values of Rs, L, and Rr.
