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,

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