Flux of a Cube

  1. Sep 27, 2011 #1
    In general I just wanted to see if I was setting this problem up correctly.

    We have a cube centered around the origin and a point charge at the origin. The task is to find the flux & confirm Gauss' Law. We are however to complete the integral ourselves. So imagining the top of the cube

    q/(4*Pi*[itex]\epsilon)[/itex][itex]\int[/itex][itex]\int[/itex]z/(x^2+y^2+z^2)^(3/2)dxdy

    Would this be the correct setup or am I mucking something up?

    Nevermind, I went through the integral, it came out correctly... though it wasn't pretty.
