Unformatted text preview: . All the charge in it is a distance √ r 2 + z 2 from P , so the potential it produces at P is dV = 1 4 πε 2 πσr dr √ r 2 + z 2 = σr dr 2 ε √ r 2 + z 2 . The total potential at P is V = σ 2 ε Z R r dr √ r 2 + z 2 = σ 2 ε p r 2 + z 2 ¯ ¯ ¯ R = σ 2 ε h p R 2 + z 2 − z i . The potential V sq at P due to a single quadrant is V sq = V 4 = σ 8 ε h p R 2 + z 2 − z i ....
