Electrix flux:

$\overline{){{\mathbf{\varphi }}}_{{\mathbf{E}}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{E}}{\mathbf{A}}{\mathbf{c}}{\mathbf{o}}{\mathbf{s}}{\mathbf{\theta }}}$

Area of a side of the cube = 0.06 × 0.06 = 0.0036m2

(a)

The angle between side one and the electric field is 150°

Φ1 = EAcosθ = (500)(0.0036)cos150 = -1.56N•m2/C
