${\Phi }_{1}=-0.39\mathrm{N}\mathrm{m}2$

${\Phi }_{2}=0.225{\mathrm{Nm}}^{2}/\mathrm{C}$

${\Phi }_{3=}0.39{\mathrm{Nm}}^{2}/\mathrm{C}$

${\Phi }_{4}=-0.225\mathrm{N}\mathrm{m}2$

net flux through the four sides of cube is$=0$

## part(a) step 1: given informaiton

cube with side of 3.0 cm

${\Phi }_{E}=AE\mathrm{cos}\theta$

$\Phi =ElectricFlux$

Again, the flux is${\Phi }_{E}=AE\mathrm{cos}\theta .$

On side 1 , the angle between$E~$ and the normal is

${\theta }_{1}=150°$

For side 2 , it's ${\theta }_{2}=60°$

For side 3 it's ${\theta }_{3}=30°$

and for side 4 it's ${\theta }_{4}=120°$

$\text{Thus,}{\Phi }_{1}=EA\mathrm{cos}{\theta }_{1}$

$=\left(500\right)\left(.03{\right)}^{2}\mathrm{cos}150°$

$=-0.39\mathrm{N}/{\mathrm{Cm}}^{2}$

${\Phi }_{2}=EA\mathrm{cos}{\theta }_{2}$

$=\left(500\right)\left(.03\right)2\mathrm{cos}60°$

$=0.225\mathrm{N}/{\mathrm{Cm}}^{2}$

${\Phi }_{3}=EA\mathrm{cos}\theta 3$

$=\left(500\right)\left(.03\right)2\mathrm{cos}30°$

$=0.39\mathrm{N}/{\mathrm{Cm}}^{2}$

${\Phi }_{4}=EA\mathrm{cos}{\theta }_{4}$

$=\left(500\right)\left(.03\right)2\mathrm{cos}120°$

$=-0.225\mathrm{N}/{\mathrm{Cm}}^{2}$

## part(b) step 1: given informaiton

cube with side 3.0

Formula Used:

${\Phi }_{E}=AE\mathrm{cos}\theta$

$\Phi =ElectricFlux$

A= Cross-sectional area of the loop

Again, the flux is ${\Phi }_{E}=AE\mathrm{cos}\theta$

On side 1 , the angle between $E~$ and the normal is

${\theta }_{1}=150°\text{.}$

$Forside2,it\text{'}s{\theta }_{2}=60°$

For side 3 it's${\theta }_{3}=30°$

and for side 4 it's ${\theta }_{4}=120°$

Taking the values from part A,

The net flux through the four sides is just the sum of the individual fluxes,

$\Phi ={\Phi }_{1}+{\Phi }_{2}+{\Phi }_{3}+{\Phi }_{4}=0,$

which we know has to be the case, since there is no enclosed net charge. ### Want to see more solutions like these?
