Electric Field Strength

  1. Sep 1, 2008 #1
    A 124 cm diameter loop is rotated in a uniform electric field until the position of the maximum electric flux is found. The flux in this position is measured to be 6.33 x 105.
    What is the electric field strength?

    Hi nslinker! :smile:

    What is the definition of flux? :smile:

    Even though an electric field doesn't actually "flow," I think of it as the flow of electric field vectors, either inward or outward.

    After reading it, I still don't know how to get to the correct equation, whether it's just plug-and-chug or if I have to integrate.

    It's a uniform electric field …

    so integrating it is just multiplying. :smile:

    So, there is no integration involved, just multiplication?

    so just 1.24 m x (6.33 x 10 ^5)?

    Why do you think it's that? :confused:
