Homework Help: Electric Flux

  1. Feb 10, 2008 #1
    If I were to take an enclosed object, like a rock, container, etc... and put it within an electric field any distance away from the source charge (so long as the source charge isn't inside the object)...would the net electric flux always be zero?

    Yes! because as much flux entering the object is outgoing.... the net flux entering or outgoing an object is depended to the net charges inside the object which in this case is zero.

    Ok. Thanks.
