Expert Answer:

According to Gauss’ Theorem, the total electric flux through all the six faces of the cube is,

φ = Charge enclosed / ε 0

φ = q /ε 0

Each face of the cube comprises 1/6 of the total surface of the cube. Therefore, the flux passing through each face is,

φ = 1/6 ? q/ε 0  =  q /6 ε 0
