Electric Flux Video Lessons

Concept

# Problem: A flat sheet is in the shape of a rectangle with sides of lengths 0.400 m and 0.600 m. The sheet is immersed in a uniform electric field of magnitude 90.0 N/C that is directed at 20° from the plane of the sheet. Find the magnitude of the electric flux through the sheet.

The magnitude of electric flux:

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

Area, A = (0.400)(0.600) = 0.24 m2
