Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0total charge on surface = surface charge density* area basically, surface charge density is the charge per unit area ...which means how much charge does an unit area has. so here \[q=\int\limits_{0}^{A}dA*\sigma \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if charge density would have varied then we might have used \[q= \int\limits_{0}^{A}dA* \sigma + \int\limits_{0}^{\sigma} d \sigma*A\]
