θ
is the angle between the direction of the ﬁeld and the direction normal
to the area.

hint:
From Gauß’s theorem, the number of ﬁeld lines through a closed surface is proportional the
enclosed charge, which is a constant for this problem.

hint:
According to Hook’s law,

F

=
κx
where
κ
is the spring constant. On the other hand,
F
is just
the Coulomb attraction between the two charges.
