ConceptCapacitors and Capacitance

#### Question

A capacitor of capacitance C is charged to a potential V. The flux of the electric field through a closed surface enclosing the capacitor is

• (CV)/∈_0

• (2CV)/∈_0

• (CV)/(2∈_0)

• Zero

#### Solution

Zero Since the net charge enclosed by the Gaussian surface is zero, the total flux of the electric field through the closed Gaussian surface enclosing the capacitor is zero. Here ,

Φ = Electric flux

q = Total Charge enclosed by the Gaussian surface .

Is there an error in this question or solution?
