# Flux through a surface#

## Part 1#

How should a planar surface of area $$A$$ be oriented in a uniform electric field of magnitude $$E_0$$ such that the electric flux through the surface is a maximum?

• Perpendicular to the electric field

• Parallel to the electric field

• At a 45 degree angle with respect to the electric field

## Part 2#

How should a planar surface of area $$A$$ be oriented in a uniform electric field of magnitude $$E_0$$ such that the absolute value of electric flux through the surface is a minimum?
