Unformatted text preview: • Method #2: If there is some special symmetry of the distribution, use Gauss’ Law to derive the field Gauss’ Law The flux of electric field through a closed surface is proportional to the charge enclosed by the surface. First we need to define the concept of flux Thursday, September 2, 2010...
