Samuel Dzifanu PHY 121 Lab 202 Lab 202 – Numerical Verification of Gauss law Samuel Dzifanu Group Members: Arianit Agushi , Crystal Ramjattan Objective: The objective of this lab will be to demonstrate Gauss’s Law. We will achieve this by using Matlab. Theoretical Background: Gauss’s Law states that the electric flux through any closed surface is proportional to the charge enclosed inside that surface. If the Gaussian surface is in a conducting region that has zero electric field, the electric flux through the Gaussian surface must also be zero. Therefore, the net charge inside the Gaussian surface must be zero. Presentation of Data clear all diary ('Lab202') diary on eps0 = 8.85*10^-12; k = 1/(4*pi*eps0); q1 = 9*10^-9;
