Field Department of Physics div_4.doc Univesity of Florida Gauss’ Law (integral form) The total electric flux, Φ E , through any closed surface S is equal to the total charge enclosed by the surface S (divided by ε 0 ) as follows: = = Φ S enclosed E Q dA E 0 ε Proof: 0 0 1 ) ( ρ enclosed V V S E Q dV dV E A d E = = = = Φ ! ! ! ! , where the total enclosed charge is given by = = V V enclosed dV dQ Q . Poisson’s Equation The electrostatic field can be written as the gradient of the electric potential, V(x,y,z), as follows: V E
