A thin disc of radius b=2a has a concentric hole of radius 'a' in it (see figure). It carries uniform surface charge '\sigma 'on it. If the electric field on its axis at height' h ' (h<<a) from its centre is given as 'Ch' then value of 'C' is :

 

  • Option 1)

    \frac{\sigma }{a\epsilon _{0}}

  • Option 2)

    \frac{\sigma }{2a\epsilon _{0}}

  • Option 3)

    \frac{\sigma }{4a\epsilon _{0}}

  • Option 4)

    \frac{\sigma }{8a\epsilon _{0}}

As we discussed in

Uniformly charged disc -

E=\frac{\sigma }{2\epsilon _{0}}\left [ 1-\frac{x}{\left ( x^{2}+R^{2} \right )^{\frac{1}{2}}} \right ]

V=\frac{\sigma }{2\epsilon _{0}}\left [ \sqrt{x^{2}+R^{2}} -x\right ]

- wherein

 

 Electric Field due to complete disc (R = 2a) at distance x

E_1=\frac{\sigma}{2 \epsilon_o}\left [ 1 - \frac{x}{(R^2+x^2)^\frac{1}{2}} \right ] \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \; \left [ h =x \; \;; \; \; 2a = R\right ]

E_1=\frac{\sigma}{2 \epsilon_o}\left [ 1 - \frac{h}{(4{a}^2+h^2)^\frac{1}{2}} \right ] = \frac{\sigma}{2 \epsilon_o}\left [ 1 - \frac{h}{2a} \right ]

Similarly electric field due to disc (R = a )

E_2=\frac{\sigma}{2 \epsilon_o}\left [ 1 - \frac{h}{a} \right ]

 Now \: E = E_1 - E_2 = \frac{\sigma}{2 \epsilon_o}\left [ 1 - \frac{h}{2a}\right ]-\frac{\sigma}{2 \epsilon_o}\left [ 1 - \frac{h}{a}\right ] = \frac{\sigma h }{4\epsilon_o a}

Hence \: C = \frac{\sigma}{4 \epsilon_o a}
