Consider a cube of sides a=8.10 m, as shown in the diagram below. Suppose that a non-uniform electric field is present and is given by E=bx^n in the direction of the x-axis, where(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

b=6.35 N/(Cm^n) and n=1.9. Calculate the magnitude of the total charge within the cube.

so i started by saying

q = epsilon * integral (E*dA)

so q= epsilon * integral (6.35*x^1.9*a^2)dA evaluated from 0 to 8.1m

any help (this is the wrong answer)
