**1. Homework Statement**

A point charge q is placed at one corner of a cube of edge a. What is the flux through each of the cube faces?

**2. Homework Equations**

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

I drew a diagram of the situation. I'm pretty sure that I should use Gauss' Law and some symmetry arguments but I am not sure how to integrate over the cubes faces taking into account that the electric field produced by the point charge is radially outwards, like a sphere cutting through the face of the cube ( poorly described I know, sorry).

Thanks for the help.
