Electric flux and charge

  1. eletric flux and charge have same units ie coloumb

    is it a coincidence or some similarity exists btw these two?

    electric flux density D= εE is used for calculating flux ψ not E .why?(read tht it is done for practical reasons) please explain the practical reasons ,if any.

  3. Electric flux is in V/m or Volt per distance, not coulomb.
  4. no,V/m is electric field intensity not flux
