A 2.10- mC charge is placed at the center of a cube of sides 6.40 cm. Determine the electric flux through each of the sides.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

ok so electric flux=E(A)

so i figure that the electic flux will be the same for all six sides of the cube so i am just calculating the flux on one side then X6.

so that would be =(2.10x10^-6)(.064)(.064)=8.60x10^-9...for one side

and that would be 5.16x10^-8 N m^2/C for all 6 sides

but this isn't right...please tell me what i am doing wrong
