3 added MathJax to equations The above picture requires us to find the flux through the square sheet, due to a proton. Treating the sheet as one plane of a Gaussian cube, I found the flux using, $$Flux= \frac{E*dA}{6}$$$$\text{Flux}= \frac{E*dA}{6}$$ This gives the answer $$9.6 \frac{nNm^{2}}{C}$$ However, the actual answer is $$3.01 \frac{nNm^{2}}{C}$$

Can someone please explain what I'm doing wrong? Thanks. The above picture requires us to find the flux through the square sheet, due to a proton.

2 added MathJax to equations The above picture requires us to find the flux through the square sheet, due to a proton. Treating the sheet as one plane of a Gaussian cube, I found the flux using,

Flux= (E*dA)/6

This $$Flux= \frac{E*dA}{6}$$ This gives the answer 9.6 nNm^2/C$$9.6 \frac{nNm^{2}}{C}$$ However, the actual answer is 3.01 nNm^2/C$$3.01 \frac{nNm^{2}}{C}$$

# Flux through square sheet due to point charge The above picture requires us to find the flux through the square sheet, due to a proton. Treating the sheet as one plane of a Gaussian cube, I found the flux using,

Flux= (E*dA)/6

This gives the answer 9.6 nNm^2/C However, the actual answer is 3.01 nNm^2/C
