Q.Why gauss law is valid only when coulombs law obeys inverse square law?

Asked by Ravi consul 4th March 2015, 6:25 PM
Answered by Expert


Coulomb's law is the coulomb's inverse square law. So the Gauss law is valid. 
Since Gauss's law is based on the inverse square dependance on the distance contained in the Coulomb's law.
Any voilation of Gauss's law will indicate departure from the inverse square law.
