- Homework Statement
- I’m trying to prove that the electric field strength between 2 capacitor plates is uniform. To do this, I first considered a capacitor consisting of 2 circular disks, with charges +Q and -Q respectively, and determined a charge per unit area, and used that to find the charge on concentric rings going outwards from the centre of the plate. Taking the integral of the force from each ring as a function of x (the distance from the centre of the plate) and r (the distance from one of the plates) gives an integral which I am not yet able to integrate but subbing values in and using a calculator to give me a value shows that it does depend on r, when it should not.

Not sure where I’ve gone wrong, a photo of my working is attached. Any advice or solutions would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks
