Box versus open surface Seem to be able to tell if there are charges inside …no clue… Gauss’s law: If we know the field distribution on closed surface we can tell what is inside. Patterns of Fields in Space
Need a way to quantify pattern of electric field on surface: electric flux 1. Direction flux>0 : electric field comes out flux<0 : electric field goes in +1 -1 0 Relate flux to the angle between outward-going normal and E: flux ~ cos( θ ) Electric Flux: Direction of E

### What students are saying

• 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.
