**A point charge Q is located on the axis of a disk of radius R at a distance b from the plane of the disk Show that if one fourth of the electric flux from the charge passes through the disk, then R= √3 b**

**I have looked it through all angles possible for me but it seems to evade me. Got this solution here http://www.askiitians.com/forums/Electrostatics/13/7495/electrostatics.htm**

**3. Looking at the above solution...i looked at the figure and thought that it was a cone so electric flux through the disc is area of cone * electrif field. But still i get no answer.In the above page it says that " flux throug a segment " is known and the formula is given but i dont know the derivation of that formula. Can someone help me out?**
