## Homework Statement

A uniformly charged conducting sphere of 1.6 m diameter has a surface charge density of 8.0 µC/m2. What is the net charge of the sphere, and what is the total electric flux leaving the surface of the sphere?

## Homework Equations

surface charge density = q/A

flux = E x A

flux = charge enclosed/ permittivity constant (Epsilon-naught)

## The Attempt at a Solution

q = surface charge density x A

so (8e-12)x(4xpix 0.8^2) = 6.434e-11

then E = k(q/r^2) = .90377 = E

so flux = E x A = .90377x 4x pi x .8^2
