Calculate the total electric flux through the paraboloidal surface due to a constant electric field of magnitude E0 in the direction shown in Figure P24.13. (Use E_0 for E0, and r and d as necessary.)

2. Relevant equations

E = (ke +q-q)/r^{2}

flux = EA cos theta

flux = Q/ e_0

3. The attempt at a solution

I have no idea how to solve this problem, or any other problems on this assignment for that matter. This seems to be beyond what the book actually covers, and I have no idea what to do. Any help is greatly appreciated.
