Unformatted text preview: ΦA stays same
dΦB stays same BB “The flux through dA would increase because the density of the lines would increase as you move the charge closer to it. Likewise as the charge is moved away from dB there will be less lines passing through dB. “
“The same number of field lines will pass through the shell surface regardless of where the charge is placed.” 50

Physics 212 Lecture 3, Slide Think of it this way: 1 2 The total flux is the same in both cases (just the total number of lines)
The flux through the right (left) hemisphere is smaller (bigger) for case 2.

-q +q +2q -q Compare Φ1, the flux through the sphere in Case 1, to Φ2, the flux through the sphere in Case 2 A) Φ1 < Φ2 B) Φ1 = Φ2 C) Φ1 > Φ2 The flux through any CLOSED SURFACE is equal to the CHARGE ENCLOSED !
The distribution of the charge matters not !
VERIFY: Count the lines leaving the sphere (20)
