### Irodov Problem 3.24

Electric flux is given by,

For this problem,

Since all points on the sphere are at the same distance R from the center, the electric field E at any point on the sphere is given by,

acting radially outwards (in the same direction as dS the area vector).

Since E is the same at every point on the sphere's surface the total flux is given by,

But the field is uniform at the surface of sphere only in the XY plane.
