Electric potential of disk with uniform surface charge
Please see the attachment for full problem statement.
A disk with radius R has uniform surface charge density .
By regarding the disk as a series of thin concentric rings, calculate the electric potential V at a point on the disk's axis a distance x from the center of the disk. Assume that the potential is zero at infinity. (Hint: Use the result that potential at a point on the ring axis at a distance x from the center of the ring is where Q is the charge of the ring.)
