(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Consider the uniformly charged sphere with radiusR.Qis the total charge inside the sphere. Find the total flux passing through the Gaussian surface (spherical shell) with radiusr. (r<R)

2. Relevant equations

I I tried solving for the Electric Flux by simply dividing the Q bythought this was too simple to be right, and as I suspected it, it was wrong.Empselon Knot

3. The attempt at a solution

I used the formula for the electric flux but usingQdivided byEmpselon Knotand got it wrong. Maybe I'm not getting the concepts right.
