# Electric Flux Density - Ring Charge

A ring placed along $y^{2}$ + $z^{2}$ = 4, x = 0 carries a uniform charge of 5 $\mu$C/m. Find D at P(3,0,0)

Should I be using Gauss's Law to solve this problem? I was considering using a spherical Gaussian Surface, and then using the formula D = $\epsilon_0$E to find D, but I'm not sure how to set up my integral.

It's solved here for all (x,y,z). The correct approach for the scope of your problem should involve trig, Coulombs law, and some intuition. physics.stackexchange.com/questions/9830/… –  Alan Rominger Mar 5 '12 at 18:05
