Question

The following figure shows a closed surface that intersects a conducting sphere. If a positive charge is placed at point P, the flux of the electric field through the closed surface

  •  will remain zero

  • will become positive

  •  will become negative

  • will become undefined

Solution

 will become positive

 

A positive charge at point P will induce a negative charge on the near face of the conducting sphere, whereas the positive charge on the farther end of the sphere. As this father end is enclosed or intersected by the closed surface, so the flux through it will become positive due to the induced positive charge.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
