A thin conducting ring of radius r has an electric charge +Q.What would be the increase in the tension of the wire,if a point +Q' is placed at the centre of the ring?

When the wire is given charge q=+Q. it comes in tension, called hoop tension. When another charge =+Q',is placed at the centre of the ring, the tension in the wire increases to keep this segment into equillibrium again.
Consider an elementary strip subtending angled at its centre.
The string is in equillibrium in X-direction.For equillibrium in y-direction,
Charge on elementary strip =
