1. Homework Statement
From the attached picture, I want to proof that Hx=0.5Ky when z>0 and Hx = -0.5Ky when z<0 (Hx is magnetic field caused by surface current density K)
I get stuck with integral problem so my questions are...
1) Can I proof by this Biot-Savart Law?
2) If so, how to eliminate the unit vector aρ or convert it in to x or y


2. Homework Equations
The first equation in the attached picture

3. The Attempt at a Solution
Look at the attached picture, I was trying to solve but got stuck on math

PS: The problem is at the bottom of the page 192 and 193 of this book:

PS2: In the picture, rho should be sqrt(x^2+z^2) not sqrt(x^2+y^2), sorry for the mistake

You can use Ampere's law for an easy solution.
