(d) At what angle 2 is the electric flux through the door a maximum? tsl42 p.3/4 Electric Flux: Application (4) Consider a positive point charge Q at the center of a spherical surface of radius R . Calculate the electric flux through the surface. ~ E is directed radially outward. Hence ~ E is parallel to d ~ A everywhere on the surface. ~ E has the same magnitude, E = kQ/R 2 , everywhere on the surface. The area of the spherical surface is A = 4 R 2 . Hence the electric flux is E = EA = 4 kQ . Note that E is independent of R . tsl43 p.4/4...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
