i wonder how come the electric flux doesn't depend on the MATERIAL that the area which the Electric field goes through is made of?>?>>??>
Electric flux is a measure of the total number of electric field lines passing through a given surface. It is a scalar quantity and is typically represented by the symbol Φ.
The material of the surface does not affect the electric flux. It is solely determined by the electric field and the geometry of the surface.
Yes, electric flux can be negative. This occurs when the electric field lines are passing through the surface in the opposite direction to the normal vector of the surface.
The SI unit of electric flux is volt-meters or V-m. It can also be expressed in terms of newton-meters squared per coulomb or Nm^{2}/C.
Electric flux is calculated by taking the dot product of the electric field vector and the normal vector of the surface. This can be represented by the equation Φ = E ∙ A, where E is the electric field and A is the surface area.
