Electric field intensity at the centre of a solid hemisphere with azimuthal volume density

I am using Guru's Electromagneic Theory Fundamentals: https://www.amazon.ca/Electromagnetic-Field-Theory-Fundamentals-Singh/dp/0521116023

For finding the electric field intensity, I am using the equation:


I am unsure about what the value of r prime should be for a solid.

r prime is a vector representing position. It is a variable which ranges across all possible positions in the hemisphere. dv prime is a small volume of charge located at position vector r prime.

r is the vector position of the point in question - ie the centre of the sphere.
