Conclusion Gauss’s law is independent of the shape or size of the object that is encapsulating the charge, all that it takes into account is the net charge inside the object. Since it only needs to account for the net charge inside, it does not matter where inside the cube the charge is located, the net flux will be the same. Questions: 2. If you change the sign of the charge, the sign of the flux will also change because the angle between the electric field lines and Surface Area Vectors will be approximately 180 degrees instead of 0, so the cosine will have the opposite sign therefore giving the dot product a sign change.

Increasing the size of the box from a=1 to a=2 then a=10 finally a=100 should have no affect on the flux because the number of electric field lines hitting each face will still cancel each other out ...
