Electric Field and Voltage Equation Applications

  1. Jul 16, 2013 #1
    I have two questions!

    General: A uniform circular ring of charge Q and radius R is located in the x-y plane, centered on the origin as shown in the figure.

    #1 What is the magnitude of the electric field, E, at point P located a distance z above the center ring?

    I came up with kQ/(R^2 + z^2). I would like to know if this is correct or where I went wrong, and how to disprove other answers!

    #2 What is the voltage at location P, assuming the voltage at infinity is zero?

    Any help is appreciated! Thanks in advanced!

    Which electric field do you expect in the center of the ring? Does your equation give the same result?

    And your attempt to solve the problem?
