explanation of gaussian surface.
Asked by | 31st Mar, 2008, 01:10: PM
Gaussian surface is a r eal or an imaginary surface which is arbitrarily chosen for the application of a Gauss's theorem(such as to calculate the electric field of the sphercial symmetrical bodies, line chage and a very thin infinite plane sheet). Whenever we want to calculate the electric field around in side or out side of the symmetrical body we draw the gaussian surface , like for spherical shell we draw the imaginary spherical gaussian surface, for infinite line charge we draw the cylinderical gaussian surface and for the thin infinite plane sheet we draw the pile box penetrating the thin infinte plane sheet. and then do required calculations.
