PHYS208 Fundamentals of Physics II

Hint for Ch. 24, 4Q

a) You might consider the charges one at a time and sketch the field lines for each that cut through the gaussian surface shown.

b) What is enclosed by the gaussian surface?

Hint for Ch. 24, 15P

HRW hint: Use Gauss's law (duh!) and symmetry arguments.

Since the charge is at the corner of a cube, consider what happens if seven other cubes are filled in about the charge.
