    The three small spheres shown in the figure (see the attachment) carry charges q1 = 3.80 nC , q2 = -7.65 nC , and q3 = 2.00 nC.

    A) Find the net electric flux through the closed surface S1 shown in cross section in the figure.

    B) Find the net electric flux through the closed surface S2 shown in cross section in the figure.

    C) Find the net electric flux through the closed surface S3 shown in cross section in the figure.

    D) Find the net electric flux through the closed surface S4 shown in cross section in the figure.

    E) Find the net electric flux through the closed surface S5 shown in cross section in the figure.

    Do your answers to parts A through E depend on how the charge is distributed over each small sphere? Why or why not?
