## How do you find the flux of a vector field?

The total flux of fluid flow through the surface S, denoted by ∬SF⋅dS, is the integral of the vector field F over S. The integral of the vector field F is defined as the integral of the scalar function F⋅n over S Flux=∬SF⋅dS=∬SF⋅ndS.

## What does flux mean in calculus?

Flux is the amount of “something” (electric field, bananas, whatever you want) passing through a surface. The total flux depends on strength of the field, the size of the surface it passes through, and their orientation.

**What is flux in electric field?**

electric flux, property of an electric field that may be thought of as the number of electric lines of force (or electric field lines) that intersect a given area. The negative flux just equals in magnitude the positive flux, so that the net, or total, electric flux is zero.

**What is flux with example?**

Flux is a chemical purifying agent, flowing agent or cleaning agent. Some examples of flux include: Ammonium chloride. Zinc chloride. Hydrochloric acid.

### What is flux of a field?

Flux is the presence of a force field in a specified physical medium, or the flow of energy through a surface. In electronics, the term applies to any electrostatic field and any magnetic field . Flux is depicted as “lines” in a plane that contains or intersects electric charge poles or magnetic poles.

### What is flux field?

**What is the difference between Green theorem and Stokes theorem?**

Stokes’ theorem is a generalization of Green’s theorem from circulation in a planar region to circulation along a surface. Green’s theorem applies only to two-dimensional vector fields and to regions in the two-dimensional plane. Stokes’ theorem generalizes Green’s theorem to three dimensions.

**Does Stokes theorem calculate flux?**

Stokes’ theorem says we can calculate the flux of curl F across surface S by knowing information only about the values of F along the boundary of S. Stokes’ theorem relates the flux integral over the surface to a line integral around the boundary of the surface. Note that the orientation of the curve is positive.

#### Is electric flux a vector quantity?

Electric flux is a scalar quantity because it is the dot product of two vector quantities, the electric field, and the perpendicular differential area.
