cture 4-1 Gauss’s Law: Qualitative Statement Form any closed surface around charges Count the number of electric field lines coming through the surface, those outward as positive and inward as negative. Then the net number of lines is proportional to the net charges enclosed in the surface .

cture 4-6 Reading Quiz 1 Which of the following statements contradict Gauss’s law? a) The electric flux through a closed surface depends on all the charges outside the closed surface. b) The electric flux through a closed surface is proportional to the net charges enclosed in the surface. c) Any closed surface can be used with Gauss’s law. d) An electric dipole inside a closed surface does not change the net flux through the surface.
