Problem 24.4: Different size flux detectors to describe a hidden charge density

Please wait for the animation to completely load.

The bar graph displays the electric flux passing through a cubical flux detector and several spherical flux detectors. Drag each detector and observe the flux readings (position is given in meters and flux is given in N·m2/C). Describe the charge distribution in as much detail as possible. The resolution of the detector is 1 mC, and the gray sphere is there for your reference only. Restart.
