Gauss’ Law
10113041010607Gauss’ LawIn the previous chapter I showed you how to find the electric field due to a charge distribution using straightforward, brute-strength methods requiring evaluation of integrals that sometimes are complicated. Now I will show you a more elegant mathematical approach that is much simpler to use for symmetric distributions. Further, the mathematics involved has wide-ranging applications.
Electric Flux and Gauss’ Law A very small area dA can be represented by a vector directed perpendicular to the area and of a magnitude equal to the area. If dA
