A question has 2 spheres of different diameters surrounding equal charges 'q'. Diameter of sphere A is smaller than diameter of sphere B. Now are the flux for both equal or not? I think they are equal because total flux = Qenclose/ epsilon-knot, so flux only depends on the charges. But then again the electric field on the bigger sphere (B) would be weaker than the E-field on sphere A examining the equation for E-field and flux is equal to the surface integral of E dot ds. So i'm questioning which is the correct answer. Thank You.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
