Take the ring of the radius ‘r’ and the width ‘dr’ on the disc.

The electric field at the distance ‘x’ from the center of the disc is

dE=x•dq/4πε₀• {sqrt(r²+x²)}³,

where dq=σ•dA = σ•2•π•r•dr.

E(x)=

=intergral(limits: from 0 to R)

{σ•2•π•r•x•dr/ 4πε₀• [sqrt(r²+x²)]³ =

=(σx/2ε₀)•{(1/x)- [1/sqrt(R²+x²)]}.
