  1. Mar 25, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. a) Find the potential due to a continuous charge distribution of a disk with a surface charge, x, at point P.
    b) Find the electric field for part A using: attached formula .

    Diagram attached.

    2. Relevant equations

    attached.

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Well my first clue was to trying to relate the variables given in the problem and diagrams in relation to potential. I wasn't really able to figure out a way to do so.
