As for the math side, I see various different equations with which this is treated can someone please provide the formulas for calculating B field from a rotating charged ring as measured from the center of the ring ,

I see the formula B=

*μ*0*I*r2/2(r2+z2)3/2 is used,

what is meant by z in it ?

1) Also on a theoretical side if a charged ring is spun around it's axis there is a B field in the non spinning frame, now if there is a stationary charged ring and next to it a disc that is now spinning then there is no B field in the stationary frame but there is a B field in the rotational frame of the spinning disc , correct?

2) Can a charged rotating ring if it is spun up and rotates within a perfect vacuum on magnetic bearings, does the magnetic field such a ring creates in the stationary frame of reference is non vanishing/permanent? As far as I can see there is no mechanism through which energy could be subtracted from this ring , apart from the charge on the ring draining away with time.

3)If one wanted to increase the charge on the ring one would need to have a "second plate" and good dielectric nearby but the "second plate" has to be stationary because if it were spinning at the same speed as the ring there would be no B field nor in the ring's frame nor in the stationary as the two opposite charge currents would cancel?
