Frequently Asked Questions

How do you apply Gauss' law to an infinite sheet of charge?

Infinite sheet of charge. Symmetry: direction of E = x-axis. Conclusion: An infinite plane sheet of charge creates a CONSTANT electric field . Apply Gauss' Law: Integrate the barrel, Now the ends, The charge enclosed = A Therefore, Gauss’ Law . CHOOSE Gaussian surface to be a cylinder aligned with the x-axis. x EE.

Is Gauss's law always valid?

While Gauss law is always valid, for it to be useful in determining the electric field, the surface has to be symmetric with respect to the charge distribution enclosed by it. So it is useful in only a few cases (point charge, spherical symmetric charge distribution, infinite line or plane charge etc). The differential form of Gauss law s

What is Gauss's law for the electric field?

Gauss’s law for the electric field describes the static electric field generated by a distribution of electric charges. It states that the electric flux through any closed surface is proportional to the total electric charge enclosed by this surface.

How do you write Gauss's law in terms of flux?

This allows us to write Gauss’s law in terms of the total electric field. The flux Φ of the electric field →E through any closed surface S (a Gaussian surface) is equal to the net charge enclosed (qenc) divided by the permittivity of free space (ε0): Φ = ∮S→E · ˆndA = qenc ε0.
