Part A

Find the total electric flux E through the surface of the cube.

Express your answer in terms of a , b , c , and L .

E = E dA ,

where the differential vector dA has magnitude proportional to the differential area and is

oriented outward and normal (perpendicular) to the surface. In some cases with simple geometry

(like this one), you can break up the integral into manageable pieces. Consider separately the

flux coming out of each of the six faces of the cube, and then add the results to obtain the net

flux.

Consider the face of the cube whose outward normal points in the positive x direction. What is

the flux +x through this face?

The field E depends only on the spatial variable x . On the +x face of the cube, x = L ,

so E is constant. Since E is constant over this entire surface, it can be pulled out of the

integral:

E dA E A.

The scalar (dot) product yields the component of the field that is in the direction of the

normal (i.e., perpendicular to the surface). Evaluate the dot product E A .

Hint 4. Flux through the +z face

Consider the face of the cube whose outward normal points in the positive z direction. What is the flux +z

Hint 2. Direction of flux

Remember to take note of whether the electric field is going into the surface or out of the surface. Flux is

defined as positive when the field is coming out of the surface and negative when the field is going into the

surface.

ANSWER:

Ex =

Hint 6. Putting it together

Using similar calculations to those above, you should be able to find the flux through each of the six faces.

Add the six quantities to obtain the net flux.

ANSWER:

Part B

Notice that the flux through the cube does not depend on a or c . Equivalently, if we were to set b = 0 ,

so that the electric field becomes

then the flux through the cube would be zero. Why?

ANSWER:

E

The flux into one side of the cube is exactly canceled by the flux out of the opposite side.

Learning Goal:

To understand the definition of electric flux, and how to calculate it.

Flux is the amount of a vector field that "flows" through a surface. We now discuss the electric flux through a

surface (a quantity needed in Gauss's law): E = E dA , where E is the flux through a surface with

differential area element dA , and E is the electric field in which the surface lies. There are several

important points to consider in this expression:

2. dA is a vector with magnitude equal to the area of an infinitesmal surface element and pointing

in a direction normal (and usually outward) to the infinitesmal surface element.

3. The scalar (dot) product E dA implies that only the component of E normal to the surface

contributes to the integral. That is, E dA = E dA cos( ) , where is the angle between

E and dA .

When you compute flux, try to pick a surface that is either parallel or perpendicular to E , so that the dot

product is easy to compute.

A point charge of +4.00 C is located on the x-axis at x = 6.00 m , next to a spherical surface of radius

x = 4.00 m centered at the origin.

ANSWER:

E= N/C

Part C

According to Gauss's law, the net flux through the sphere is zero because it contains no charge. Yet the

field due to the external charge is much stronger on the near side of the sphere (i.e., at x = 4.00 m )

than on the far side (at x = -4.00 m ). How, then, can the flux into the sphere (on the near side) equal

the flux out of it (on the far side)? Explain. A sketch will help.

HW02: Chapter 22 (part 1) Page 12 of 32

Gauss's law relates the electric flux E through a closed surface to the total charge qencl enclosed by the

surface:

qencl

E = E dA = 0 .

You can use Gauss's law to determine the charge enclosed inside a closed surface on which the electric

field is known. However, Gauss's law is most frequently used to determine the electric field from a symmetric

charge distribution.

The simplest case in which Gauss's law can be used to determine the electric field is that in which the

charge is localized at a point, a line, or a plane. When the charge is localized at a point, so that the electric

field radiates in three-dimensional space, the Gaussian surface is a sphere, and computations can be done

in spherical coordinates. Now consider extending all elements of the problem (charge, Gaussian surface,

boundary conditions) infinitely along some direction, say along the z axis. In this case, the point has been

extended to a line, namely, the z axis, and the resulting electric field has cylindrical symmetry. Consequently,

the problem reduces to two dimensions, since the field varies only with x and y, or with r and in cylindrical

coordinates. A one-dimensional problem may be achieved by extending the problem uniformly in two

directions. In this case, the point is extended to a plane, and consequently, it has planar symmetry.

Three dimensions

Consider a point charge q in three-dimensional space. Symmetry requires the electric field to point directly

away from the charge in all directions. To find E(r) , the magnitude of the field at distance r from the

charge, the logical Gaussian surface is a sphere centered at the charge. The electric field is normal to this

surface, so the dot product of the electric field and an infinitesimal surface element involves cos(0) = 1 .

The flux integral is therefore reduced to E(r) dA = E(r)A(r) , where E(r) is the magnitude of the

electric field on the Gaussian surface, and A(r) is the area of the surface.

Part A

Determine the magnitude E(r) by applying Gauss's law.

ANSWER:

E= N/C

Two dimensions

Now consider the case that the charge has been extended along the z axis. This is generally called a line

charge. The usual variable for a line charge density (charge per unit length) is , and it has units (in the SI

system) of coulombs per meter.

Part B

By symmetry, the electric field must point radially outward from the wire at each point; that is, the field

lines lie in planes perpendicular to the wire. In solving for the magnitude of the radial electric field E(r)

produced by a line charge with charge density , one should use a cylindrical Gaussian surface whose

axis is the line charge. The length of the cylindrical surface L should cancel out of the expression for

E(r) . Apply Gauss's law to this situation to find an expression for E(r) .

Express E(r) in terms of some or all of

the variables , r , and any needed

constants.

ANSWER:

E(r) =

One dimension

Now consider the case with one effective direction. In order to make a problem effectively one-dimensional, it

is necessary to extend a charge to infinity along two orthogonal axes, conventionally taken to be x and y.

When the charge is extended to infinity in the xy plane (so that by symmetry, the electric field will be directed

in the z direction and depend only on z), the charge distribution is sometimes called a sheet charge. The

symbol usually used for two-dimensional charge density is either , or . In this problem we will use .

has units of coulombs per meter squared.

Part C

In solving for the magnitude of the electric field E (z) produced by a sheet charge with charge density

, use the planar symmetry since the charge distribution doesn't change if you slide it in any direction of

xy plane parallel to the sheet. Therefore at each point, the electric field is perpendicular to the sheet and

must have the same magnitude at any given distance on either side of the sheet. To take advantage of

these symmetry properties, use a Gaussian surface in the shape of a cylinder with its axis perpendicular

to the sheet of charge, with ends of area A which will cancel out of the expression for E(z) in the end.

The result of applying Gauss's law to this situation then gives an expression for E(z) for both z > 0

and z < 0 .

Express E(z) for z > 0 in terms of some

or all of the variables/constants , z , and

0 .

HW02: Chapter 22 (part 1) Page 16 of 32

Learning Goal:

To practice Problem-Solving Strategy 22.1: Gauss's Law.

An infinite cylindrical rod has a uniform volume charge density (where > 0 ). The cross section of the

rod has radius r0 . Find the magnitude of the electric field E at a distance r from the axis of the rod. Assume

that r < r0 .

Gauss’s law is most useful in situations where the charge distribution has spherical or cylindrical symmetry

or is distributed uniformly over a plane. In these situations we determine the direction of E from the

symmetry of the charge distribution. If we are given the charge distribution, we can use Gauss’s law to find

the magnitude of E . Alternatively, if we are given the field, we can use Gauss’s law to determine the details

of the charge distribution. In either case, begin your analysis by asking the question: What is the symmetry?

1. Select the surface that you will use with Gauss’s law. We often call it a Gaussian surface. If you

are trying to find the field at a particular point, then that point must lie on your Gaussian

surface.

2. The Gaussian surface does not have to be a real physical surface. Often the appropriate

surface is an imaginary geometric surface.

3. If the charge distribution has cylindrical or spherical symmetry, choose the Gaussian surface to

be a coaxial cylinder or a concentric sphere, respectively.

Qencl

E = E cos dA = E dA = E dA = 0

The symmetry of the charge distribution and your careful choice of a Gaussian surface make

the integration straightforward.

2. Often you can think of the closed Gaussian surface as being made up of several separate

surfaces. The integral E dA over the entire closed surface is always equal to the sum of

the integrals over all the separate surfaces.

3. If E is perpendicular (normal) at every point to a surface with area A , if it points outward from

the interior of the surface, and if it also has the same magnitude at every point on the surface,

then E = E = constant , and E dA over that surface is equal to EA . If instead E

is perpendicular and inward, then E = E and E dA EA .

4. If E is tangent to a surface at every point, then E = 0 and the integral over that surface is

zero.

5. If E = 0 at every point on a surface, the integral is zero.

6. In E dA , E is always the perpendicular component of the total electric field at each

point on the closed Gaussian surface. In general, this field may be caused partly by charges

within the surface and partly by charges outside it. Even when there is no charge within the

surface, the field at points on the Gaussian surface is not necessarily zero. In that case,

however, the integral over the Gaussian surface—that is, the total electric flux through the

Gaussian surface—is always zero.

7. Once you have evaluated the integral, use the equation E = E dA = Qencl / 0 to solve

for your target variable.

Often your result will be a function that describes how the magnitude of the electric field varies with position.

Examine this function with a critical eye to see whether it makes sense.

The charge distribution described in this problem has cylindrical symmetry. The electric field must point away

from the positive charges distributed on the rod. Since you are given information on the charge distribution,

use Gauss’s law to determine the magnitude of E at the required position.

appropriate choice of Gaussian surface to use in this problem.

Hint 1. How to approach the problem

Apply Gauss's law: First calculate the net electric flux (as a function of the given variables)

through the cylindrical Gaussian surface described in Part A by evaluating E dA ; then make

the flux equal to the total charge enclosed by the Gaussian surface divided by 0 , and solve for

the electric field. Keep in mind that we've chosen the label l to represent the length of the

cylindrical Gaussian surface. Use this notation through the remainer of this problem, however,

note that your final answer should not depend on l .

You can think of the closed Gaussian cylinder as being made up of three separate

surfaces: the curved wall and the two end caps. The integral E dA over the entire

Part B and review points 3 and 4 in the strategy above.

equal to the linear charge density times the length of the segment: Ql = l . Combining

Part B

What is the total surface charge qext on the exterior surface of the conductor?

In the problem introduction you are told that the conducting sphere is neutral. Furthermore, recall

that the free charges within a conductor always accumulate on the conductor's surface (or

surfaces, in this case). You found the net charge on the conductor's interior surface in Part A. If

the conductor is to have zero net charge (as it must, since it is neutral), how much charge must

be present on its exterior surface?

In a thunderstorm, charge builds up on the water droplets or ice crystals in a cloud. Thus, the charge can be

considered to be distributed uniformly throughout the cloud. For the purposes of this problem, take the cloud

to be a sphere of diameter 1.00 kilometer. The point of this problem is to estimate the maximum amount of

charge that this cloud can contain, assuming that the charge builds up until the electric field at the surface of

the cloud reaches the value at which the surrounding air breaks down. This breakdown means that the air

becomes highly ionized, enabling it to conduct the charge from the cloud to the ground or another nearby

cloud. The ionized air will then emit light due to the recombination of the electrons and atoms to form excited

molecules that radiate light. In addition, the large current will heat up the air, resulting in its rapid expansion.

These two phenomena account for the appearance of lightning and the sound of thunder. Take the

breakdown electric field of air to be Eb = 3.00 × 106 N/C .

Part A

Estimate the total charge q on the cloud when the breakdown of the surrounding air is reached.

Part B

A spherical cavity is excised from the inside

a

of the sphere. The cavity has radius and is

4

centered at position h , where |h| < a ,

4

so that the entire cavity is contained within

the larger sphere. Find the electric field inside

the cavity.

Express your answer as a vector in terms

of any or all of (Greek letter rho), 0 , r ,

and h .

Use the principle of superposition. A region of zero charge behaves just like a region with equal

amounts of positive and negative charge. Consider the field produced by an imaginary sphere

the size of the cavity, with charge density opposite that of the larger sphere. If you add the field

from the imaginary sphere to the field produced by the original, intact, sphere, you will obtain the

field produced by the sphere with the cavity.

a

Consider an imaginary sphere with charge density and radius centered at h . Ignoring the

4

actual sphere, what is the field Eimag (r ) inside the imaginary sphere?

The imaginary sphere is just like the uniformly charged sphere studied in Part A of this

problem, except that it has a different charge density and different position. Therefore,

you can use the result you already obtained from the uniformly charged sphere if you use

the new charge density and if you replace r with a new vector s that represents the

displacement from the center of the imaginary sphere to r .
