942 Chapter 23 1. The vector area A and the electric field E are shown on the diagram below. The angle between them is 180° – 35° = 145°, so the electric flux through the area is    2 3 2 2 cos 1800 N C 3.2 10 m cos145 1.5 10 N m C. E A EA      2. We use   z E dA and note that the side length of the cube is (3.0 m–1.0 m) = 2.0 m. (a) On the top face of the cube y = 2.0 m and   ˆ j dA dA . Therefore, we have     2 ? ? 5i 3 2.0 2 j 4i 18j E . Thus the flux is        2 2 2 top top top ? ? 5i 18j j 18 18 2.0 N m C 72 N m C. E dA dA dA         (b) On the bottom face of the cube y = 0 and dA dA b g ej j . Therefore, we have   2 ? ? 5i 3 0 2 j 5i 6j E . Thus, the flux is         2 2 2 bottom bottom bottom ? ? 5i 6j j 6 6 2.0 N m C 24 N m C. E dA dA dA     (c) On the left face of the cube     ˆ i dA dA .

But since E has no z component 0 E dA . Thus, = 0.

943 (e) We now have to add the flux through all six faces. One can easily verify that the flux through the front face is zero, while that through the right face is the opposite of that through the left one, or +16 N·m 2 /C. Thus the net flux through the cube is = (–72 + 24 – 20 + 0 + 0 + 16) N·m 2 /C = – 52 N·m 2 /C. 3. We use   E A , where A A . j m j 2 140 b g .

(d) The total flux of a uniform field through a closed surface is always zero. 4. The flux through the flat surface encircled by the rim is given by 2 . a E   Thus, the flux through the netting is 2 3 4 2 (0.11 m) (3.0 10 N/C) 1.1 10 N m /C a E          . 5. To exploit the symmetry of the situation, we imagine a closed Gaussian surface in the shape of a cube, of edge length d , with a proton of charge 19 1.6 10 C q   situated at the inside center of the cube. The cube has six faces, and we expect an equal amount of flux through each face. The total amount of flux is net = q / 0 , and we conclude that the flux through the square is one-sixth of that. Thus, 19 9 2 12 2 2
