Electric Flux

For an arbitrary closed surface, the net outward flow or flux is the product of the average outdrawn normal component of the vector and the area of surface. Electric flux is used to express the relation between  and its source. Flux is denoted by 

 = (average normal component)×(surface area)

The unit of electric flux is newton-meter2/coul.
