Electric Field: not quite getting the correct answer

  1. Feb 8, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    YF-22-35.jpg

    E1 = 2.9E4 N/C
    E2 = 8.6E4 N/C
    Both fields are uniform

    2. Relevant equations

    flux = [tex]\int[/tex] Eperp*dA = Qencl/ [tex]\epsilon[/tex]0


    3. The attempt at a solution



    flux1 = E1cos(30)(.05m)(.06m)
    flux2=E2cos(30)(.05m)(.06m)
    (flux1+flux2) = Qencl/ [tex]\epsilon[/tex]0
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    But my answer is wrong. I appreciate any help.

    What is the question?

    Also, those fields are at an angle of 60 degrees from the surface normal.
