(a, c) Let Q he the charge on the ring, the negative charge – q is released from point P (0, 0,Zo). The electric field at P due to the charged ring will be along positive z-axis and its magnitude will be

E = 1/ 4pe0 QZ0/(R2 +Z20)3./2

Therefore, force on charge P will be towards centre as shown, and its magnitude is

Fe = qE = 1/4pe0 Qq/(R2 + Z20)3/2 Z0
