Lecture 4-1 Gauss’s Law: Qualitative Statement (Review) 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 .

Lecture 4-2 Electric flux (Review) # of field lines N = density of field lines x “area” To state Gauss’s Law in a quantitative form, we first need to define Electric Flux. Surface can be of any shape Surface can be open or closed Must specify “which way” N E A E An  E E An    “area”=A = A cos if A is tilted A
Lecture 4-3 Electric flux through Arbitrary Surface General definition of electric flux: E S E ndA  (must specify sense , i.e., which way ) E E An Divide the surface into many very small, nearly flat plaquettes and sum over the contributions from all of them.
