hi

i am posting a problem 2.26 from griffiths EM book third edition.i am also attaching the solution from the book's solution manual. in the solution, griffiths has taken the ring as the differential element. but i want to know if we can take the small rectangular patch on the conical surface as the differential area element so that we can do double integration for calculating the potential at two points.

I don't see why not. What do you get when you try it?
