Homework Statement


What is the net electric flux through the torus (i.e., doughnut shape) of the figure



Homework Equations



net flux= E*A I believe is needed

The Attempt at a Solution


I don't know how to do this problem at all. I feel like I don't have enough information to calculate the answer. Any advice as how to start this problem because I don't have the radius of the objects so how can I figure out the area.

Use Gauss's law. The enclosed charge is - 1 nC if you choose the torus as the closed surface. It is a closed surface since it has an outer and inner surface and one cannot pass from the one to the other.
