Gaussian surfaces

    A positive test charge is placed at the center of a spherical Gaussian surface. What happens to the net flux through the Gaussian surface when the surface is replaced by a cube of the same volume whose center is at the same point? or When the sphere is replaced by a cube of one third the volume centered at the same point?

    See Gauss' Law. Net flux through ANY closed surface depends only on...
