Problem 7.

A closed surface encloses a net charge of 10 nC . What is the net electric flux through the surface?

Solution

Problem 20.

A cylinder with radius r= 0.75 m and length l=0.6 m that has an infinite line of positive charge running along its axis.  The charge per unit length on the line is .

(a) What is the electric flux through the cylinder due to this line of charge?

(b) What is the flux through the cylinder if its radius increased to r= 0.32 m?

(c) What is the flux through the cylinder if its length increased to l= 0.8 m?

Solution
