how is Gauss's Law use in determining the electric field anywhere around a point charge and how is this related to Coulomb's law?

    Gauss' law can be derived from Coulomb's law using vector calculus. Gauss' law leads to quicker solutions in situations where there is some kind of symmetry, or uniform charge distribution.
