1. Homework Statement

The Flux of the E-Field is a vector.
It is safer to sit inside a car when lightning strikes than to stand in the open.
If the net charge enclosed by a Gaussian Surface is zero, then by Gauss' Law, the E-Field is zero at all points on the surface.
The Electric flux through a closed surface wholly within a charged conductor is zero.
The Electric Flux through a closed surface is independent of static charges outside the surface.


2. Homework Equations

These are all either true or false

3. The Attempt at a Solution
1 is false
2 i think is false because because a charge within a hollow conductor makes the whole conductor act as if it were the charge
3 is true
4 i know is true
5 false

help? im going nuts :surprised
