An electric field of intensity 4.27 kN/C is applied along the xaxis. Calculate the electric flux through a rectangular plane 0.350 m wide and 0.700 m long if the following conditions are true.
(a) The plane is parallel to the yzplane.
(b) The plane is parallel to the xyplane.
(c) The plane contains the yaxis, and its normal makes an angle of 41.7° with the xaxis.

(a) In this case, the E field is perpendicular to the plane of the surface. Multiply the field strength by the area.
(b) In this case, the E field is parallel to the surface and the flux is zero.
(c) E*(Area)*(cos41.7) = ?
