Calculating E for symmetric charge distributions Calculating E for symmetric charge distributions 1) Use symmetry to sketch the behaviour of E (possible only for very symmetric distributions) 1) Pick an imaginary “Gaussian surface” S 1) Calculate the flux through S, in terms of an unknown | E | 2) Calculate the chargeenclosed by S from geometry 3) Relate3) and 4) by Gauss’s Law, solve for | 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.
