how to draw the electric lines of force due to two equal point charges kept at some saperation?
Yes, but what is it?
What physical phenomenon does flux correspond to? The integral of acceleration is velocity. The integral of ... is flux. I know what velocity is, but I have no idea what flux is after reading this article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 19:54, 9 June 2011 (UTC)
- I always look at it as a measure of the number of electric field lines passing through a surface which is perpendicular to those lines.
- I'll have a look at editing the page to give a fuller description in a few weeks' time when I'll have some more free time on my hands - unless someone else beats me to it. Hope it helps, anyway! -- 15:59, 10 June 2011 (UTC)
no. to number
Phi or Psi ?
What ever happened to D
Electric flux has been integrated over 'D', not 'E'. ISO 31 and ASA 1046 gives 'electric flux' as having units 'coulomb', and symbol of [math]\Psi[/math].
I have not found a reference before 1975 using E as the basis of flux, although 'Electromagnetism' (I.S.Grant and W.R.Phillips, Wiley) uses E to form flux.
