Gauss’s Law Gauss’s Law x y z q E S (closed surface) q N flux lines ˆ S D n dS q = Ñ The charge q is inside the surface. Hence N S = N ( all flux lines go through S ) S q N N Ψ = q / N = flux per line

Gauss’s Law (cont.) Gauss’s Law (cont.) N S = 0 q S ˆ 0 S D n dS = Ñ The charge q is now outside the surface (All flux lines enter and then leave the surface.) Hence

To summarize both cases, ˆ encl S D n dS Q = Ñ By superposition, this law must be true for arbitrary charges. Gauss’s Law (cont.) Gauss’s Law (cont.) Carl Friedrich Gauss Gauss’s law
