Using what you one about the geometry of the source, one can simplify the expression. For example, if the source is a ring of charge with radius $R$ and charge $Q$ in the $x$-, $y$-plane the integral becomes: Using what you one about the geometry of the source, one can simplify the expression. For example, if the source is a ring of charge with radius $R$ and charge $Q$ in the $x$-, $y$-plane the integral becomes:
-$$\text{Coordinate and Geometry Dependent:} \qquad V=\frac{1}{4 \pi \epsilon_0}\, \frac{Q}{2\pi} \int_0^{2\pi}\frac{R\ d\phi'}{| R^2 + s^2 +2Rs \cos(\phi-\phi') + z^2|}$$+$$\text{Coordinate and Geometry Dependent:} \qquad V=\frac{1}{4 \pi \epsilon_0}\, \frac{Q}{2\pi R} \int_0^{2\pi}\frac{R\ d\phi'}{| R^2 + s^2 +2Rs \cos(\phi-\phi') + z^2|}$$
