A spherical Gaussian surface encloses a charge of 8.85x10-9 C. Calculate the electric flux passing through the surface. How would the flux change if the radius of the Gaussian surface is doubled and why?

from Gauss's law we know electric flux=q/?0 it has nothing to do with the surface area.
if the surface doubles then also the flux will remain the the flux depends on the total charge enclosed.
