## Homework Statement

A uniform charge density of 700 nC/m3 is distributed throughout a spherical volume of radius 6.00 cm. Consider a cubical Gaussian surface with its center at the center of the sphere.

[reference picture]

What is the electric flux through this cubical surface if its edge length is 16.0 cm?

## Homework Equations

(Electric Flux) = Derivative of: E(vector) * dA(vector)

(Permittivity Constant) * (Electric Flux) = (Charge Enclosed)

Electric Field of a Sphere = (kq/R^3)r

## The Attempt at a Solution

I tried to find to treat the enclosed sphere as a point charge within the Gaussian cube but am unsure about how to calculate the flux within the cube using this quantity.

To find q-enclosed of the sphere i divided its charge density by its volume.
