Answer : (a) $\;\large\frac{Q}{4\;\in_{0}}$
Explanation : $\;E_{x}\;$ on the ring of radius x $\;=\large\frac{k\;Q}{(b^2+x^2)}\;cos\;\theta$
Putting $\;x=b\;tan\;\theta$
$\phi=\large\frac{2\;\pi\;k\;Q\;b}{b^3}\;\int_{0}^{tan^{-1}\;(\large\frac{R}{b})}\;\large\frac{(b\;tan\;\theta)\;(b\;sec^{2}\;\theta)}{sec^3\;\theta}\;d \theta$
$\phi=2\;\pi\;k\;Q \int_{0}^{\alpha}\;sin\;\theta\;d \theta\quad\;[\alpha=tan^{-1} (\sqrt{3})=60^{0}]$
$\phi=2\;\pi\;k\;Q\;(1-cos \alpha)$
