Answer :


Given:

Charge on the ring: Q
Radius of the ring : R
Charge of the particle at point P : q
Mass of the particle : m
Distance of P from the centre of the ring: x
Distance of P from the element A : l
Formula used:
Electric force is given as:
Where F is the electric force, q is the charge and E is the electric field.

Newton’s Law gives :
Time period is given as:
Where, l is the length. In this case OP=x and a is the acceleration.



Where F is the electric force, q is the charge and E is the electric field.
Consider an element of charge dQ on the ring at A.
Electric field at P due to the element A is given as:
Here, dE is the electric field due to element A. k= =9× 109 Nm2C-2, dQ is the charge of the element A and l is the distance between A and P.
Now,
And

Ecosθ

Therefore, the net electric field at P due to the entire ring is:



Therefore substituting in equation (1) we get,
Here, F is the electric force on the particle due to entire charged ring.

Now the condition given in the question is x
R. Thus, x2 can be neglected.

Hence using equation (2) and (3) we get,
Putting the value of k:

Hence time period of oscillation of the particle is
