The three small spheres shown in the figure (Figure 1)carry charges q 1 = 3.70 nC , q 2 = -7.60 nC , and q 3 = 2.20 nC . Figure 1 of 1
Part A Find the net electric flux through the closed surface S 1 shown in cross-section in the figure.
Part B Find the net electric flux through the closed surface S 2 shown in cross-section in the figure.
Part C Find the net electric flux through the closed surface S 3 shown in cross-section in the figure.
Part D Find the net electric flux through the closed surface S 4 shown in cross-section in the figure.
Part E Find the net electric flux through the closed surface S 5 shown in cross-section in the figure.
Part F Do your answers to parts A through E depend on how the charge is distributed over each small sphere?
