Mark the correct options:
A. Gauss’s law is valid only for symmetrical charge distributions.

B. Gauss’s law is valid only for charges placed in vacuum.

C. The electric field calculated by Gauss’s law is the field due to the charges inside the Gaussian surface.

D. The flux of the electric field through a closed surface due to all the charges is equal to the flux due to the charges enclosed by the surface.

Answer :

Gauss’ law states that the flux through a surface is equal to 1/𝜖 times the total charge enclosed by the surface(if the surface enclosing is in a medium other than vacuum)


where ϵ is the electric permittivity of that medium.

Hence, the flux through the Gaussian surface will be due to charges enclosed by it (option d)
