The bar graph displays the electric flux passing through a cubical flux detector and a spherical flux detector. Observe the flux reading.
Calculate the electric field at the surface of each detector using Gauss's law. The detectors are fixed in place.
Cannot determine with detector 1 and 8.7 N/C for detector 2.
