\[E _{p}=k _{e}\lambda R (x _{p}\int\limits\limits_{0}^{2\pi}\frac{ d \theta }{ (x _{p}^{2}2Rx _{p} \cos \theta +R ^{2})^{3/2}}R \int\limits\limits_{0}^{2\pi}\frac{ \cos \theta d \theta }{ (x _{p}^{2}2Rx _{p}\cos \theta +R ^{2})^{3/2} })\]

I think it may have something to do with partial fractions. I need somebody to guide me through it

is this physics?

ok so, can I assume that the only variable is theta?

Yes, everything is constant except theta and cos theta.

ok give me a second to think

Take your time, but please don't just give me the answer. Guide me through it. It is not a homework assignment or anything. Just part of my afternoon physics thinking

\[E _{p}=k _{e}\lambda R (x _{p}\int\limits\limits_{0}^{2\pi}\frac{ d \theta }{ (x _{p}^{2}2Rx _{p} \cos \theta +R ^{2})^{3/2}}R \int\limits\limits_{0}^{2\pi}\frac{ \cos \theta d \theta }{ (x _{p}^{2}2Rx _{p}\cos \theta +R ^{2})^{3/2} })\] We can combine the two integrals:\[ E _{p}=k _{e}\lambda R \int\limits\limits_{0}^{2\pi}\frac{ x_pRcos( \theta) d \theta }{ (x _{p}^{2}2Rx _{p} \cos \theta +R ^{2})^{3/2}}\]

Then long division

or complex integration

FibonacciChick666Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
complex would be easier

I don't know complex integration. I'm only about to start my highschool senior year. I will give it a shot at long division.

integration by parts would work too you would need two degrees of integration then notice they look the same

are you sure you didn't screw up deriving this integral?

Jajaja. I don't know. Take a look at it: I have a ring with uniform charge Q. Calculate the electric field at any point around the xaxis. dw:1375329903540:dw Well, I did it this way: \[\lceil dE _{p} \rceil=k _{e }\frac{ dQ }{ r ^{3} }\lceil r \rceil=k _{e }\frac{ dQ }{ r ^{3} }(\lceil y \rceil+\lceil x _{p}R \cos \theta \rceil) \]\[dQ=\lambda ds= \lambda R d \theta\]One we integrate, the side with the y vector, will cancel because of symmetry, so in magnitude:\[E _{p}=\int\limits\limits_{0}^{2 \pi} k _{e}\frac{ \lambda R }{ r ^{3} }(x _{p}R \cos \theta)d \theta=\int\limits\limits_{0}^{2 \pi} k _{e}\frac{ \lambda R }{ ((x _{p}R \cos \theta)^{2} +R ^{2}\sin ^{2}\theta)^{3/2} }(x _{p}R \cos \theta)d \theta \]The ceils just represent vetors.
