Textbook Problem

For a closed surface through which the net flux is zero, each of the following four statements could be true. Which of the statements must he true? (There may be more than one.) (a) There are no charges inside the surface. (b) The net charge inside the surface is zero. (c) The electric field is zero everywhere on the surface. (d) The number of electric field lines entering the surface equals the number leaving the surface.

(a)

To determine
Whether the given statement is true or false.

Explanation

Electric Flux is defined as the measure of electric field flowing through a given area. From Gauss’s law,

ϕE=qnetε0

  • qnet is the net charge enclosed by the Gaussian surface

(b)

To determine
Whether the given statement is true or false.

(c)

To determine
Whether the given statement is true or false.

(d)

To determine
Whether the given statement is true or false.
