We were asked to compute for the electric field experience by a point charge P caused by a ring-shaped conductor. And my professor just used Q for the computation. However, when we computed for the electric field experienced by P caused by a charged rod, we used the lambda to derive the charge. Shouldn't the ring problem be computed the same way also?

In this problem, the symmetries of all charged points with respect to the axis do not necessitate to break down \(dq\) in \(dq=\lambda dl\), as you would normally do (e.g. straight line). If you did, you would integrate \(\lambda dl\) as \(\lambda \times 2\pi R\), then you would express \(\lambda = \Large \frac{Q}{2\pi R}\) ... and finally find... \(Q\) It is easier to integrate \(dq\) as \(Q\) straight away.
