If the charge in a conductor is 16C and the area of cross section is 4m2. Calculate the electric flux density. 


Electric Flux density is the charge per unit area. 
The formula is: D = Q / A = 16 / 4 = 4C/m2.

Eight point charges (can be assumed as small sphere uniformly charged and their centres at the corner of the cube) having values q each are fixed at vertices of a cube. The electric flux through square surface ABCD of the cube is  Find the value of α


The electric flux through ABCD due to charges at ABC and D is zero.

The flux through ABCD due to any of the charges at EFG and H are  each.

Hence the net electric flux through ABCD is 

The correct answer is: 6

Figure given, shows a closed Gaussian surface in the shape of a cube of edge length 3.0m. There exists an electric field given by where x is in metres, in the region in which it lies. The net charge in coulombs enclosed by the cube is equal to α∈0. Find the value of α.


Direction of field at x = –3m is along negative x-axis. Area vector is also along same direction

Components of electric field which are constant, do not contribute in net flux in or out.

The correct answer is: 54

*Answer can only contain numeric values

A square loop of side ℓ having uniform linear charge density λ is placed in xy plane as shown in the figure. There is a non-uniform electric field where a  is a constant. Then resultant electric force on the loop if ℓ = 10 cm, a = 2N/C and charge density λ = 2μC/m is  Find the value of α.


on BC  and  AD electric field is no uniform   
∴  x is not constant. But on BC and AD electric field will have the same type of variation.

The correct answer is: 4
