Magnetic flux and Gauss law

  1. Mar 3, 2006 #1
    I have this problem in which I am ask to find the magnetic flux through the square:
    this is the picture


    I know that I need to use the Gauss law but I just don't know how to use it.
    please just give some hints .I feel I can do it!

    Gauss' law applies to electrostatic field. You can use Ampere's law to find the magnetic field of the wire. Then straightforward integration to find the flux through the square.
