Textbook Problem

A charge q = +5.80 μC is located at the center of a regular tetrahedron (a four-sided surface) as in Figure P15.48. Find (a) the total electric flux through the tetrahedron and (b) the electric flux through one face of the tetrahedron.

Figure P15.48

(a)

To determine
The total electric flux.

Explanation

Given info: The charge q is 5.80μC .

Formula to calculate the electric flux is,

ϕE=qinsideε0

  • qinside is the charge inside the surface.
  • ε0 is the permittivity of free space.

Substitute 8.854×1012 m3kg1s4A2 for ε0 , 5.80μC for qinside

ϕE=5

(b)

To determine
The electric flux through one face of the tetrahedron.
