Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

From what I understand the proof of Gauss' law applies only to finite surfaces.

Can anyone give an example of a charge distribution and an infinite Gaussian surface, where the total flux on itis notproportional to the enclosed charge?

Thanks!
