2 PHY2049: Chapter 23 Reading Quiz What is the electric flux through a sphere of radius R surrounding a charge +Q at the center? 1) ʵ Q 2) +Q/ Џ 0 3) ʵ Q/ Џ 0 4) +Q 5) None of these
3 PHY2049: Chapter 23 Electric Flux Simple definition of electric flux (E constant, flat surface) E at an angle В to planar surface, area A Units = N m 2 / C (SI units) Simple example Let E = 10 4 N/C pass through 2m × 5m rectangle, 30° to normal Φ E = 10 4 * 10 * cos(30) = 100,000 * 0.866 = 86,600 More general E definition (E variable, curved surface) Normal E
