## The following charges are located inside a submarine: 5.00 μC, -9.00 μC, 27.0 μC, and -84.0 μC. (a) Calculate the net electric flux through the hull of the submarine, (b) Is the number of electric field lines leaving the submarine greater than, equal to. or less than the number entering it?

(a)

To determine

The net electric flux through the hull of the submarine.

### Explanation of Solution

Given info: The submarine contains 5.00μC , 9.00μC , 27.0μC and 84.00μC .

The net charge inside the submarine is,

qnet=5.00μC9.00μC+27.0μC84.00μC=61μC(106C1μC)=61×106C (1)

The formula to calculate electric flux through the hull of submarine is,

ϕ=qnetε0

Here,

qnet is the charge enclosed inside the submarine.

ε0 is the permittivity of free space.

The permittivity of free space is 8

(b)

To determine

Whether the number of electric field lines leaving the submarine is greater than, equal to or less than the number entering it.
