Gauss’s law states that: The net outward normal electric flux through any closed surface is proportional to the total electric charge enclosed within that closed surface.

## Is flux proportional to charge?

Gauss’s Law states that the net electric flux through **any closed surface is proportional to the net charge enclosed**, not the E-field!

## What is the relation between flux and current?

This also means that the flux induced by a current (not a change in current) **is proportional to the current**, since the flux is produced in response to the current. So, a change in flux induces a current and a voltage which is proportional to the rate of change of flux. This fits with Ohm’s Law (V = IR).

## Does electric flux depend on charge distribution?

We can now determine the electric flux **through an arbitrary closed surface due to an arbitrary charge distribution**. … Therefore, if a closed surface does not have any charges inside the enclosed volume, then the electric flux through the surface is zero.

## Is flux can be negative?

The **negative flux just equals in magnitude the positive flux**, so that the net, or total, electric flux is zero. If a net charge is contained inside a closed surface, the total flux through the surface is proportional to the enclosed charge, positive if it is positive, negative if it is negative.

## How do you find flux?

To find the total flux, we simply find **the flux over the curved surface area by integrating, then find the flux through the two ends, and add them all up**. This then defines all the ˆn vectors uniquely.

## At what angle electric flux is minimum?

The electric flux through the surface is minimum when the angle between **e and a** is. salonitomar2770 is waiting for your help.

## Does electric flux depend on size?

As per the Guess theorem in electrostatics, electric flux does not depend on the shape or size of the surface. The **electric flux depends only on the charge enclosed by the surface**.
