Coulomb's Law into Gauss' Law

  • #1

Homework Statement


Q) Use Coulomb’s Law to DERIVE the Gauss Law result for the particular case of A
SINGLE POINT CHARGE. That is, using Coulomb’s Law, find the ELECTRIC FLUX going through a sphere of radius r surrounding one point charge of charge-magnitude q.

THANK YOU


Homework Equations


F=((k)(q1)(q2))/d^2

∫E*dA=Q/ε° E and Da are vectors

The Attempt at a Solution


sadly i don't have an attempt because my textbook showes taking Gauss's law and arriving at coulombs law and i can't figure out how to do it in reverse.

Start by writing out coulombs law as a volume integral - then you need to be able to relate the vlume integral to a surface integral.
