Electrical Field on a Gaussian Surface

The electrical field in a particular space is E = (X + 1.2)1 N/C with x in meters. Consider a cylindrical Gaussian surface of radius 16 cm that is coaxial with the x axis. One end of the cylinder is at x = 0. (a) What is the magnitude of the electric flux through the other end of the cylinder at x = 3.2 m? (b) What net charge is enclosed within the cylinder?

Solution Summary

This solution contains over 200 words and calculations to determine the magnitude of the electric flux and net change exists in the cylinder.
