Homework Help: Zero total charge

  1. Feb 4, 2013 #1
    For a certain problem I have non-zero electrical field E, non-zero electric flux density D, and non-zero volumic charge density ρV.

    When I integrate pV dV over the given region, I get 0.

    How is this possible?

    Why do you think it's not possible to have zero net charge in such a region?
