Rank Flux through Surfaces   Script by Anne Cox, Mario Belloni
Electric Field


Start Animation

The animation shows a charge (in the center) surrounded by three co-centric circles.  The circles are the cross-section of spheres that surround the charge.  There is also a moveable point that measures the electric field and shows the direction of the field.  Position is in meters and electric field is in N/C.

Rank the flux through the three spheres from greatest to smallest. Explain your reasoning.
