Suppose the planet Mars has an electric field similar to Earth's, producing a net electric flux of -363 x 1016 Nm2/C at the planet's surface.

(a) Calculate the total electric charge on Mars.

(b) Calculate the electric field at the surface of Mars (see chart).

(c) Calculate the the charge density on Mars, assuming all the the charge is           uniformly distributed over the surface.
