Electric flux (in a uniform field)


Electric flux is the rate of flow of the electric field through a given area. Electric flux is proportional to the number of electric field lines going through a virtual surface. If the electric field is uniform, the electric flux passing through a surface of vector area S is related to the electric field and the area of the surface
