A 2.00 square meter flat surface is placed in a uniform electric field of magnitude 6.00 N/C. If the surface is oriented so that the field lines are all parallel to the surface, find the magnitude of the electric flux through this area

1. Parallel to the surface? Isn't flux the E field that goes through the surface? It has to be zero through the surface.
