You measure an electric field of 1.26×106 N/C at a distance of 0.161 m from a point charge. There is no other source of electric field in the region other than this point charge

What is the electric flux through the surface of a sphere that has this charge at its center and that has radius 0.161 m ?

What is the magnitude of the charge?


Expert Answer

Step 1


Electric field = 1.26 X 106 N/C

Distance = 0.161 m
