Unformatted text preview: . If you stack identical cubes side by side and directly on top of each other, you will find that eight cubes meet at any corner. Thus one-eighth of the field lines emanating from the point particle pass through a cube with a corner at the charge and the total flux through the surface of such a cube is . (a) Now the field lines are radial, so at each of the three cube faces that meet at the particle the lines are parallel to the face and the flux through the face is zero. (b) The fluxes through each of the other three faces are the same, so the flux through each of them is one-third the total. That is, the flux through each of these faces is ....
