2. Relevant equations

[tex] I = \int \int J . dS [/tex]

[tex] V = - \int E . dl[/tex]

[tex] V = IR[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm not really sure how to get started on this problem, generally I would start with Laplace's equation but due to its irregular shape, I don't think that I can use that for this situation.

J is a function the length of the shape, but not sure how to formulate it into something useful

Does anyone know how I can get started on this?

[tex]I(z) = \int_0^h \int_0^{2\pi} \mathbf{J}(z) z d\phi dz[/tex]
