8/28/11 4 Flux of an Electric Field Analogy : think of rain which falls into a bucket. Less rainwater enters the bucket if it is tilted A E EA EA = = θ cos ~ lines of number The number of lines crossing a surface is proportional to the perpendicular component of the field.

8/28/11 5 Electric field flux Field lines can either enter the closed surface area, or exit it. Flux sign is consistent with the sign of the enclosed net charge. Definition of electric field flux: θ cos EA A E EA E = = = Φ
