Electric flux through one face of the cube.

  1. Apr 2, 2008 #1
    A point charge Q = 5.00 µC is located at the center of a cube of side L= 0.120 m. In addition, six other identical point charges having q = -0.50 µC are positioned symmetrically around Q, as shown in Figure P24.19. Determine the electric flux through one face of the cube.

    Okay, so what have you done so far?

    Use Gauss's law and the symmetry of a cube.

    same sort of question, is L not needed for the calculation?
    can someone check my work,
    Q=5.17 uC
    q=-1.10 uC
    L= 0.124 m
    per side=flux/6
    26900 N*m^2/C?
