Question

The electric field in a region is given by 

`vec"E"= 3/5"E"_0 vec"i" + 4/5 "E"_0 vec "i"  "with" " E"_0 = 2.0 xx 10^3 "N""C"^-1.` 

 Find the flux of this field through a rectangular surface of area 0⋅2 m2 parallel to the y-z plane.

Solution

Given:
Electric field strength `vec"E" = 3/5 "E"_0 hat"i" + 4/5 "E"_0` \[ \stackrel\frown{j}\],

where E0 = 2.0  103 N/C

he plane of the rectangular surface is parallel to the y-z plane. The normal to the plane of the rectangular surface is along the x axis. Only `3/5 "E"_0`\[ \stackrel\frown{i}\], passes perpendicular to the plane; so, only this component of the field will contribute to flux.
On the other hand, `4/5 "E"_0`\[ \stackrel\frown{j}\]  moves parallel to the surface.
Surface area of the rectangular surface, = 0⋅2 m2

Flux,

`phi = vec"E" . vec"a" = "E" xx "a"`

`phi = (3/5 xx 2 xx 10^3) xx ( 2 xx 10^-1) "N""m"^2 //"C"`

`phi = 0.24 xx 10^3 "N""m"^2//"C"`

`phi = 240 "N""m"^2//"C"`

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
