i had a question in my paper(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

why electrostatic field lines cannot be discontinuous in charge free region

i guessed a weird (but an innovative proof)

Tell me is it correct

So here it goes

"Let's assume that ELOF can be discontinuous

Then i draw a diagram of broken electric field

Now at one of the two free ends i assumed a small Gaussian volume(Only the free end)

Now using gauss law

ø:FLUX

ø = ∑Qenclosed/ε

ELOF ARE ENTERING BUT NOT ESCAPING SO ø≠0

BUT ∑qENCLOSED=0

SO OUR ASSUMPTION IS FALSE

H.P.:tongue:"
