Let's start with a brief overview of where this section will take us. We'll begin with a definition of flux that is easy to understand, then we'll turn that simple definition into a formidable-looking integral. We need the integral because the simple definition applies only to uniform electric fields and flat surfaces. Those are good starting points, but we'll soon need to calculate the flux of nonuniform fields through curved surfaces.
Mathematically, the flux of a ...more
And it's SO VERBOSE. No textbook needs to be 1200 pages.
(I actually have the 1st edition...)
Only complaint is that the sample problems interrupted the flow of the text quite often. Would rather they be placed at the end of sections instead in the middle of them.
