  • #1
Homework Statement:
Calculate the flux at point P located at a distance r from the centre of a sphere with uniform brightness, B. Idem for an infinite plane with the same brightness B. And the same for a square surface with side L.
Relevant Equations:
N/A
Hi! I’m really struggling to solve the last part of this problem, from where it says “Idem for an infinite plane with the same brightness B. And the same for a square surface with side L.”.

Could anyone please help or point me in the right direction? Thank you so much in advance!
