## Homework Statement

Provide a proof of Gauss’s law starting from Coulomb’s law for a point charge

## Homework Equations

F=kq1.q2/r^2

(closed)s∫E.n.da=qenc/ε0

## The Attempt at a Solution

My starting point is:

F21=1/(4∏.ε0).(q2.q1)/r21^2.r(unit vector)21

*Note, the 21 terms after F and r should be subscripts

and here's where I've ended up:

E*vector*(r*vector*)=[F*vector*(r*vector*)]/q0= 1/(4∏.ε0).Ʃi(qi)/ri0^2.r(unit vector)i0

Not sure if I'm even on the right track. If anyone could provide the proof it'd be much appreciated.
