Question:

A 0.510-m diameter spherical shell is placed in a uniform electric field of magnitude 3.66x10{eq}^4 {/eq} N/C. Find the total electric flux, in NA?1m{eq}^2 {/eq}/C, through the shell.

Gauss's Law:

For any closed surface, the total electric flux through it is proportional to the net charge enclosed by the closed surface, and is independent of any charge outside the closed surface, which is based on Gauss's Law.

Given Data

  • Diameter of a spherical shell, d = 0.510 m
  • Uniform electric field in the region, {eq}E\ = 3.66\times 10^4\ N/C{/eq}

Finding the total...
