1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A sealed metal can is placed in a uniform external electric field of 10 N/C . The field points along the +x direction. The can is 20cm in length and 10cm in diameter. What's the value of the electric field at the center of the can? 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution i'm pretty sure this has something to do with Gauss' law but I'm not sure how to relate electric flux back to electric field magnitude especially without a charge?
